Spiritual and pastoral care

Spiritual and religious care is an integral part of any community ; chaplains are available at the Women’s Hospital to support people through times of distress, anguish, stress , illness and bereavement.

Our chaplains support individuals and families who have experienced baby loss . We also work very closely with the Bereavement Department to provide annual baby memorial services where parents and families can remember their babies in a formal service of remembrance.

The Chaplaincy service offers care and support to people of all religious beliefs and those of no particular belief at all…

At the Birmingham Women’s Hospital we offer a very diverse and comprehensive service. We have a team of paid and volunteer chaplains and visitors who are trained and experienced in pastoral, spiritual, religious care and counsel.
