Baby Loss Awareness Week 2019

Baby Loss Awareness Week 2019 is from 9-15 October. It's a time for people to commemorate their babies' lives. The Week also helps to raise awareness of how pregnancy and baby loss affects thousands of families each year across the UK.

We're marking this week by #BreakingTheSilence on the reality of baby loss by sharing the experiences of our community through our 7 Days of care

Join us for the global ‘Wave of Light’ at 7pm on 15 October when we come together, light candles and remember every life lost.

Coping with grief

The intense grief after losing a baby can cause overwhelming, possibly frightening, emotional and physical reactions.

Making memories

For many people, the loss of a baby leaves them feeling shocked, isolated and empty. Making memories and finding ways to remember your baby during this difficult time can create a legacy to treasure.

Add my name

In 2019, losing a baby shouldn't be seen as just 'one of those things'. Help us fight for more research into the causes of pregnancy loss.

How to give support

Losing a baby is devastating and it's hard to know what to do or say...

The Wave of Light
