Honeysuckle Bereavement Service

The Honeysuckle Team provide care for women and their families at Liverpool Women’s Hospital following miscarriage, stillbirth and early neonatal death.

If you experience a baby loss you will be offered support and advice from our Honeysuckle Team. The Honeysuckle Team provides practical guidance and information to you and your family, they will help to explain some of the formalities involved and guide you through some of the choices you maybe required to make during a difficult time.

Although the team do not offer formal counselling they are available for you to have an informal chat to, sometimes this can be helpful outside of the family setting. They can also provide you with contact details for outside support for specialist bereavement counselling.

The team organise quarterly events in the hope of bringing families together who have been through similar experiences  to offer each other relief and support (please contact the team directly if you would like more details).

If you and your family do not meet a member of the team before you leave hospital please do not hesitate to make contact them on 0151 702 4151.
