Baby Loss Memorial Book in St Mary's

Embrace is a Fairford-based support group for anyone who has experienced any family planning difficulties, including infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth and others.  We meet in the evening on the 4th Wednesday of each month to offer friendship and support and to help each other to live well in the light of our experiences. After a member was inspired by what she saw in another church, Embrace has been working with Rev. Symcox to plan the placement, in St Mary's, of a Baby Loss Memorial Book. This beautiful book will be in the church and available to anyone who would like to write an entry in memory of a baby they have lost, at any stage of pregnancy or after birth. We hope there will be a service to dedicate this book before the end of July, so please keep an eye out for details. After this service the book will be placed in the church and will be available to all.

If you have been affected by baby loss, or any kind of family planning difficulty and would like support, or to know more about this special book, please email
