Taking place 9 - 15 October every year, Baby Loss Awareness Week raises awareness of pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.
Throughout the week, bereaved parents, and their families and friends, unite with others across the world to commemorate the lives of babies who died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth, and in infancy.
Led by Sands, the Baby Loss Awareness Alliance is a collaboration of more than 100 charities working together to break the taboo and drive improvements in policy, bereavement care and support for anyone affected by the death of a baby.The Week has 3 core aims:
- To Commemorate Babies' Lives and support bereaved parents and families.
- To Raise Awareness about pregnancy and baby loss.
- To Drive Change and improvements in care and support.
Whilst I am not sure exactly what to say ... I want to share our commitment to build awareness and help drive change through our community.
I see you and am here to help. If there is anything more we can do, please let me know.
