Baby Loss Awareness Week – Let's break the silence around baby loss

Welcome to Baby Loss Awareness Week 2022

Baby Loss Awareness Week (9-15 Oct) is now in its 20th 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

“Nobody knows how baby loss will affect them, and sadly the pain doesn’t just go away.”

“They gave us time we needed and offered support to help us cope.”

“Just know that you are NOT alone. ”

“We will never ever forget Freya; I see her in her sister and brother 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.”
