Online Wave of Light
To mark the end of Baby Loss Awareness Week, we are coming together for a special online event in memory of babies lost during pregnancy or at or soon after birth.
Join us in lighting candles together to remember all the tiny lives lost in pregnancy or during or shortly after birth, during our annual Online Wave of Light event on Zoom. It will be held at 7pm on Sunday 15th October (with everyone logged in to the Zoom by 6.50pm).
While the candles are burning, we’ll also be remembering babies by reading out names, nicknames, due dates, or other important details you share with us, 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.
How do I register to join the event?
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.
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.
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 11th October. All members of the family are welcome to join us – you only need to register once per household.
When will I receive a response to my registration?
We will send details on how to join the events by 5pm on Thursday 12th October. If you think you have not received this email, please check your spam or junk folders before getting in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for it to be resent. Please ensure you have contacted us by 2pm on Friday 13th October, otherwise we regret we may not be able to resend in time.
What time should I log in to the Zoom?
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 event.
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.
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 event there will be plenty of time afterwards to join in by searching for the hashtag #WaveofLight and sharing a photo if you wish.
Baby Loss Awareness Week starts on Monday 9th October.
