Baby Loss Awareness Week 2017

Baby Loss Awareness Week takes place from 9 to 15 October every year. It’s an opportunity for parents, their families and friends to acknowledge and remember their precious babies who have died. It is led by Sands in collaboration with over 40 charities in the UK.

Baby Loss Awareness Week is an opportunity:

  • for bereaved parents, and their families and friends, to unite with others across the world to commemorate their babies’ lives.
  • to raise awareness about the issues surrounding pregnancy and baby loss in the UK, and push for tangible improvements in services, support, research or policy around bereavement support
  • to let the public and key stakeholders know what charities and other supportive organisations are doing on bereavement support around pregnancy and baby loss

Baby Loss Awareness Week finishes with Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day on Sunday 15 October upon which the Global Wave of Light event is held.
