lose their babies during pregnancy or shortly after birth.

The quiet and private space will enable parents going through this unimaginable time to create precious memories with their baby, in a

safe and comfortable environment separate from the clinical setting.

Both Maternity Service users and staff were invited to give suggestions for the name of the suite.

These suggestions were all discussed yesterday at a meeting with the QEH Maternity Voice

Partnership (MVP) and they have been shortlisted down to four; the public are now invited to vote.

The names are:

The Butterfly Suite

The Lavender Suite

The Meadow Suite

The Star Suite

Votes can be made at here, with voting closing on Friday 19

February 2021.

The appeal for the suite was launched in early 2020 and became Lynn News’s Charity of the Year.

With thanks to a number of donations from the local community, and the Trust’s own charity, the

project received the go-ahead in November 2020 and it is hoped that the facility will open later this

year.

However, further funds are needed to furnish the facility and to make it as homely and welcoming

as possible. If you can donate to the appeal, please visit
