9-15 October marks Baby Loss Awareness Week every year
It is a week for everyone in the baby loss community and beyond to come together to remember and commemorate our much-loved and missed babies. Throughout the week, bereaved parents, family members and friends can remember and raise awareness together with thousands of families elsewhere in the world.
The week also provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the impact of pregnancy and baby loss; the importance that bereavement support plays in the ongoing bereavement journey; and of the vital work that is needed to improve pregnancy outcomes and to save babies’ lives.
2022 was the 20th anniversary of Baby Loss Awareness Week
The theme was Stepping Stones; reflecting on all the steps along the journey, and how they are different for everyone.
Throughout the week we shared some of your personal stories, invited you to share our Bereavement Candles on your social media, join our Wave of Light and take part in our Painted Pebbles.
We shared personal stories from our group on this page throughout the week. Thank you so much to our kind parents for sharing their experiences and helping us to raise awareness.
