Baby Loss Awareness Week 2016

Losing a baby at any stage of pregnancy can be a devastating experience. Baby Loss Awareness Week occurs every year to recognise the parents who have endured this heartbreak and honour the little ones they have lost.

Too often the subject of baby loss is avoided or kept quiet due to the taboos that still exists around miscarriage, stillbirth and neonatal death. We approached seven bloggers to help us break this silence and share their stories across each of the seven days of Baby Loss Awareness Week.
