Each year 9-15 October is Baby Loss Awareness Week. Throughout the week bereaved parents, their families and friends, unite with each other and others across the world to commemorate their babies’ lives.
Baby Loss Awareness Week also provides a chance to raise awareness about the issues surrounding pregnancy and baby loss in the UK. This year we are calling for improved bereavement support for families affected by baby and pregnancy loss.
In the UK, Baby Loss Awareness Week is a collaboration between more than 40 charities.
“Like lots of other people in this sad situation, acknowledgement was what we were seeking and to those who gave that and asked about our babies and our experiences, I will always be grateful.”
Join us October 15 2018
Everyone is invited to take part in this global event to remember all the babies that have died during pregnancy, at, during or after birth.

How did someone help you?
We want to raise awareness of the issues surrounding the death of the baby and highlight how people can help parents whose baby has died.
We believe that as far as is possible, there should be high quality bereavement support services and care available for everyone wherever they live in the UK. Everyone should have the chance to have the support they need, when they need it, for as long as they need it.
