You can help to break the silence around baby loss by talking to your friends, family and colleagues about Baby Loss Awareness Week and by joining the conversation on social media using the hashtag #BLAW2020 wearing a pin badge or lighting a candle on 15th October.

Follow us on on TwitterFacebook and Instagram (if you don’t already!). You can also add #babyloss to your social media posts to link up with other people talking about the issue on social media.

Buy your Baby Loss Awareness ribbon pin badge to support families affected by the death of a baby

This Baby Loss Awareness Week we need your support to raise awareness that baby death is a tragic issue that affects thousands in the UK alone every year.

We want as many people as possible to wear the badge during Baby Loss Awareness Week 9-15 October. This will help us to raise awareness of baby loss.

A number of the charities involved in promoting Baby Loss Awareness Week have the awareness pin badge available to buy from their websites. Money raised from sales of the badges will go to the charity you purchase it from, and will be spent on the important work they carry out.

Don’t forget to share your pictures with the pin badge to show your support and help raise awareness one ribbon at a time. Simply post a photo wearing your pin badge on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram using #BLAW2020 and #babyloss hashtag.

If you have any further questions or would like to share with us about your plans,
