Baby Loss Awareness Week
|Published: 29th September 2015 16:25|
Baby Loss Awareness Week takes place from 9 to 15 October 2015. It's an opportunity for parents, their families and friends to acknowledge and remember their precious babies who have died.
It is also a chance to raise awareness of the emotional impact of pregnancy and infant loss, and the scale of the tragedy, which affects up to one in five families in the UK.
Some people may not know how to offer support to someone they know and may feel scared to bring up the subject. Baby Loss Awareness Week is an opportunity to help banish the taboo and make people aware of the wonderful charities and organisations that support parents and offer advice to family members, friends and healthcare professionals caring for those whose baby has died.
Find out more about how you can support and get involved in the campaign on the Baby Loss Awareness Week website.
You can show your support by wearing a Baby Loss Awareness pin, available from and a number of the supporting charities see http://www.babyloss-awareness.org/get-involved for links and details.
