Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020

Baby Loss Awareness Week is a time for bereaved parents, and their families and friends to unite and commemorate their babies' lives. The week also raises awareness of how pregnancy and baby loss affects thousands of families each year across the UK.

2020 has been a difficult year for many, but the effect of social distancing from Covid-19 has had a major impact on access to care and support for bereaved parents and has complicated grief and responses to pregnancy and baby loss.

Help us to continue breaking the silence around pregnancy and baby loss so families aren’t left isolated by their grief. Take action today

Stand in solidarity with bereaved parents across the UK

Join the Wave of Light

This tragedy affects 1 in 4 pregnancies in the UK. Stigma and silence often means families feel isolated in their grief, and COVID-19 has made this worse. Together we stand in solidarity with everyone who has lost a baby: we won’t stop researching baby loss, and we’ll support every parent who turns to us.
