Baby Loss Awareness Week events 2018

A list of events being held around the UK to mark Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018 is available here.

Below are a few we’d like to highlight:

Remembrance walks

Two remembrance walks are being organised by Miscarriage Association volunteers Erin and Kymm, respectively:

Belfast – A Walk of Remembrance on Saturday 13 October at 5:30pm, meeting at the main gate of Belfast City Hall.  Participants are invited to bring a battery candle and children are also welcome to attend.

Nottingham – A Memory Walk at Wollaton Hall and Deer Park on Sunday 14 October, from 11:00am until 1:00pm, organised by Nottingham Miscarriage Support Group.

Lighting up the UK in pink and blue

For the second year running, you’ll hopefully be able to spot some buildings and landmarks lit up in blue and pink in support of Baby Loss Awareness Week.

More than 50 places are already signed up thanks to many charity staff and supporters asking them to get involved. These include Belfast City Hall, The Dome in Edinburgh, Cardiff City Hall and Portsmouth’s Spinnaker tower.

You can find a map of all the buildings taking part here.

Parliamentary events

During Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018 we’ll also be calling on the public, healthcare professionals and parliamentarians, to make sure parents who experience pregnancy or baby loss get the best possible care, wherever they live and when they need it.

What’s more, this year’s awareness week marks the public roll-out of the National Bereavement Care Pathway (NBCP), with all documents, tools and resources being made publicly available for the first time.

As part of this combined Baby Loss and NBCP initiative, we’re looking forward to several events:
