Parent support meeting for bereaved parents taking place in Cavan

A parent support meeting for bereaved parents will take place in Cavan this evening.

The event is being organised by ‘A Little Lifetime Foundation’ which was founded in 1983 by a group of parents whose babies died before or at birth or sometime after birth.

A baby is delivered stillborn in Irish maternity hospitals almost every day according to HSE data.

Almost 700 stillborn babies were delivered in Irish hospitals over the past two years.

The parent support meeting will take place in the Hotel Kilmore this evening from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
