The Butterfly Award was set up to recognise the efforts of midwives and nurses who support parents following the death of their babies at any stage of pregnancy.
Scot and Clare Barlow nominated the maternity team at George Elliot Hospital, following the loss of their daughter, Ariana Barlow, 39 hours after she was born.
The couple launched the charity Ariana’s Hope, to raise funds to refurbish the labour suite they used to spend time with Ariana.
Head of midwifery at the hospital, Alison Talbot said: “We are honoured to have been nominated for this award by Ariana’s Hope and thank them for their support.
Most parents experiencing pregnancy loss want to cherish and remember their baby and our trained midwives do all they can to help and support them through a very sad time.”
The team has been nominated in the ‘Best Hospital Bereavement Service’ category.
The award winners of the Butterfly Award will be announced at a ceremony in Worcester on Tuesday 10 October 2015.
