Honeysuckle Bereavement Service

The Honeysuckle Team provide care for women and their families at Liverpool Women’s Hospital following pregnancy loss at any gestation and early neonatal death.

The Honeysuckle Team provides practical guidance, information and emotional support to families, helping to explain the formalities involved and guide families through some of the choices that are required at such difficult time.

The Honeysuckle Team can be contacted during their office hours Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm on 0151 702 4151 or email honeysuckle@lwh.nhs.uk 

The Honeysuckle Team have a closed Facebook group for families. Request to join the 'Honeysuckle Community Page'. There is also a separate closed group solely for dads to join. Request to join ‘Honeysuckle Dads Page’.

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

The Honeysuckle Team run a support group for anyone affected by the loss of a baby. The group is in a safe, confidential, friendly environment where you can talk openly with bereaved families who have gone through similar experiences.

The meetings are not formal counselling sessions, but a place to go and spend time with others who understand the pain of baby loss. You will also have the opportunity to meet with professionals from organisations that can offer practical support and guidance, as well as The Honeysuckle Team’s specialist bereavement midwives.

Our meetings are for adults only, due to the sensitive nature of the group children cannot attend.

The sessions are usually held monthly, within the Blair Bell Education Centre at Liverpool Women's Hospital.

If you would like more information about the support group or to book a place for the next group meeting please contact the team by emailing honeysuckle@lwh.nhs.uk
