Kaukab Stewart, SNP MSP for Glasgow Kelvin, has welcomed the introduction of the Baby Loss Memorial Book for anyone who has experienced pregnancy or baby loss prior to 24 weeks.


The book, designed with the support of charities and health professionals, will give parents in Glasgow the opportunity to commemorate their loss with a physical record. The book is free and entirely optional.


The development of a Memorial Book was undertaken by the Scottish Government after listening to parents who told their experiences of how difficult it was that their losses went unrecognised.


Commenting, SNP MSP Kaukab Stewart said:


“Losing a baby during pregnancy can only be incredibly painful and difficult for any family and up to now there was no formal way to recognise their loss.


“The Memorial Book will hopefully provide the opportunity for families in  who have suffered this loss a source of comfort that their baby will be acknowledged and remembered.


“I encourage anyone in the Glasgow area who has suffered through this experience to apply, should they wish, to this free and voluntary service.”
