Baby Loss Awareness Week - 9th-15th October

 

From 9th-15th October 2020, Baby Loss Awareness Week UK will go ahead for it’s 18th year.

Every year, Baby Loss Awareness Week aims to raise awareness about pregnancy and baby death in the UK.

This year we are highlighting the isolation many people experience after pregnancy and baby loss – women, partners, other family members and friends.

The effect of social distancing from COVID19 has had a major impact on access to care and support and has complicated grief and responses to pregnancy and baby loss.

Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, feelings of isolation have become more widespread around the world and many people have begun to talk more openly about loneliness.

Now more than ever, we can all come together to let those affected by pregnancy and baby loss know they are not alone and that we are all here to support them.

So, this year, we invite everyone to come together, share their experiences and show their support for those who have experienced the loss of a baby – whether or not they have been directly affected themselves.

Each day during #BLAW2020 we will explore a different topic, sharing the Baby Loss Awareness Alliance’s wide range of excellent support and information and coping techniques too – engaging with people from all backgrounds and experiences of loss.
