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.
"No two grieving people are the same. Every single person grieves differently. But they do grieve."

Coping with grief
"It affects everything... socialising, working. Just being is very difficult."

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.
"I cuddled him and I spoke to him. I tried to bond with him like I would a normal child."

Remembering your baby
"He's sort of acquired his own personality in the things that we've done in honour of his memory, whether it's fundraising, writing or just sharing his memory."
