Online Wave of Light

This Baby Loss Awareness Week, we are coming together for special events in memory of babies lost during pregnancy or at or soon after birth.

Our Online Wave of Light events will take place at 7pm on Friday 15th October and we are inviting you to join us in lighting candles to remember those tiny lives lost too soon.

While the candles are burning, we’ll also be remembering babies by reading out their names, nicknames, due dates, or other important details, and the event will be rounded off with the reading of a poem.

Our Wave of Light events are being led by our volunteer support group leaders and are open to anyone, with a specific event being held for Northern Ireland.

If you would like to join us, you will need to register in advance – please complete our online form by scrolling down within the box below.

It meant so very much to us both to be able to take part in the Wave of Light, it helped my husband to express his feelings and well, to just have a good cry. It was the first time he has cried since the day we found out we had lost the baby, so it was well needed.

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 13th October. All members of the family are welcome to join us – you only need to register once per household.

We will send details on how to join the events by 5pm on Thursday 14th October. (If you think you have not received this email, please check your spam or junk folders before getting in touch with juanita@miscarriageassociation.org.uk to ask for it to be resent. Please ensure you have contacted us by 2pm on Friday, 15th October, otherwise we regret we may not be able to resend in time.)

Do please 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 events.

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 online events there will be plenty of time afterwards to join in and share a photo if you wish. You will just need to search social media for the hashtag #WaveofLight.

Baby Loss Awareness Week starts on Saturday 9th October.
