Hospital bereavement suite for parents who've lost babies

It's one of life's tragedies, almost too awful to contemplate. Nothing can be as traumatic as losing a baby. To try to ease the agony a specially designed bereavement suite is to be built at one of the south east's biggest hospitals. The centre at Medway Maritime Hospital will offer parents a private area where they can try to come to terms with their grief.

Tom Savvides talks to parents Jo and David Ward, Head of Midwifery Dot Smith and television presenter Cheryl Baker, who's the Vice-President of the charity Abigail's Footsteps.
