Representatives from the Knights of Columbus Holy Name Council 3305 were on hand to present a cheque for $2000 to the WRH Foundation. The donation supports the Hospital’s Perinatal Bereavement program. The Perinatal Bereavement Committee of Windsor Regional Hospital provides care for parents experiencing perinatal loss. The program offers parents an opportunity to acknowledge the birth and death of their baby including photographs, footprints, certificates, special clothing/blankets and spiritual needs. It also provides the family with bereavement support through compassionate listening, grief support, information and support after leaving the hospital.

Windsor Regional Hospital Spiritual Care department, with the assistance of the Perinatal Bereavement Committee hosts an annual memorial service, ‘A Time To Remember’ offering healing, comfort, support and encouragement to parents and families.
