Songs from the Labour Ward

image1-1Ren Forteath is a newly qualified midwife who has been singing and writing songs for many years. Her recent music is inspired by her journey both as a midiwfery student and as a mother and the eight tracks on her current album reflect this journey. Ren works at Cresswell and in her spare time also enjoys appearing in DMTC productions, baking, writing novels and walking absurd distances to raise money for her favourite charities accompanied by her long-suffering friends. She really hopes you enjoy these songs, and that the money raised (£1 from each CD goes to D&G SANDS) will help many more families.

CD costs £5 and can be ordered directly from Ren Forteath at [email protected]

Next Support Meeting

The next support group meeting is planned for

  • 7th November: 7.30pm

and we welcome anyone touched by the death of a baby to join us.

The meeting will be held at our office at 107 Irish Street Dumfries.

Many people feel that only others who have experienced the death of a baby can offer real understanding of the pain and heartbreak that they are feeling and the support group meetings allow you to connect with other bereaved parents, grandparents and others who share your pain and loss.

The support group is an informal setting and is only attended by people who themselves have lost a baby or their families. You will not be pressured to speak and sometimes it’s nice just to simply come along and listen.

If anyone would like more information about these meetings or would like to express an interest in attending then please email [email protected]
