Amanda and Siria from Illawarra Baby and Child Loss Support (IBCLS) visited Wollongong Hospital’s Birthing Unit this week to deliver information bags for bereaved families. Wollongong Hospital Maternity Operations Manager Barb Atkins and Wollongong Hospital Midwifery Unit Manager Karen Atkin were honoured to accept the bags from the group.
“The hospital is fortunate to work together with IBCLS in a range of ways that aim to help and support local families. The group provided invaluable input during the redevelopment of the Wollongong Hospital Birthing Unit and this latest project, to develop these bags, is just another way IBCLS is making a difference,” Barb said.
The bags each contain the following:
- USB drive for the hospital to place any photos taken and for families to keep photos safe until they get home
