Welcome to Baby Loss Awareness Week (9-15 Oct)

Baby Loss Awareness Week is now in its 22nd year.


Baby Loss Awareness Week is a wonderful opportunity to bring us together as a community and give anyone touched by pregnancy and baby loss a safe and supportive space to share their experiences and feel that they are not alone.


During last year’s #WaveOfLight messages of remembrance and hope brought many people together. Take care of yourselves and know that we are here for you now and throughout the year.


You are not alone.

Your Stories

“We grieved HARD. Having a TMFR (Termination For Medical Reasons) leaves you in no mans land.”

“I couldn’t help but think maybe this one was meant to be. However, we again lost the pregnancy in the early stages.”

“Those months during lockdown, planning how we were going to raise her were the best months of my life.”

“But his heart is broken, and he too carries the grief, through every moment, of every day.”

“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.”
