To mark the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week, we’ll be coming together for our special annual Zoom event in memory of babies lost during pregnancy or at or soon after birth.
During our Wave of Light event, which will take place at 7pm (UK time) on Saturday 15th October, we’ll invite you to join us in lighting a candle, or candles, and for some quiet reflection.
While the candles are burning, we’ll also be remembering your babies by reading out their names or other important details, that you can give us if you’d like to, and then reading a poem.
Our Wave of Light events are being led by some of our volunteer support group leaders and are open to anyone.
If you would like to join us, we’re asking you to register in advance by using our online form here. You can also use this form to tell us if you would like a name or other details reading out on the evening.
We aim to accommodate as many people as possible but we expect demand to be high, so please do register as soon as you can – the last day for registrations is Wednesday 12th October. All members of the family are welcome to join us – you only need to register once per household.
We will send the Zoom link to all those registered by 5pm on Thursday 13th October. Please remember to check your spam folders and if you have not received the link please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by 2pm on Friday 14th October, otherwise we regret we might not be able to resend the link in time.
Do please also make sure that you are on Zoom no later than 6.50pm on the 15th October so that we have time to admit you to the event in time for the start.
I took part to remember all the babies that were taken too soon… Thank you so much for organising this Zoom call and for saying the names of our angels out loud.
The annual global Wave of Light, with candles burning across social media channels, will be starting at the same time. If you’re attending our event there will be plenty of time afterwards to join in by following hashtag #WaveofLight and sharing a photo if you wish.
