Today marks the start of Baby Loss Awareness Week, a special annual event to mark the lives of babies lost in pregnancy or during or soon after birth and to raise public awareness of pregnancy and baby loss.
The Miscarriage Association is joining with over 100 other charities or groups from around the UK to talk about the wellbeing of those who have experienced pregnancy and baby loss and about those who care for them.
Each day during the Week will have a particular focus within the overall theme of wellbeing:
Sat 9 October – An introduction to the week and to the theme of wellbeing
Sun 10 October – Looking after yourself
Mon 11 October – Looking after those who provide care and support and those on the front line
Tue 12 October – Looking after siblings (children and adults)
Wed 13 October – Looking after partners
Thu 14 October – Looking after each other as a community and in the workplace
Fri 15 October – A focus on remembrance and the Wave of Light
