Baby Loss Awareness Week

9 October, 2021 (All day) to 15 October, 2021 (All day)

Baby Loss Awareness Week is held annually from 9 to 15 October. It’s a special opportunity to mark the lives of babies lost in pregnancy or at or soon after birth.

During this week, we work alongside more than 90 other charities and groups to raise awareness of key issues that affect people who have lost a baby.

Like any other week we will be here to provide support and information to anyone affected by pregnancy loss, however recent or long ago. If you would like to talk with one of our helpline support workers – by phone, email or live chat – you can find more details here.

While this week can be a special time of remembrance, the increase in social media activity around pregnancy and baby loss can understandably feel overwhelming for some. Do take some time out from social media if and whenever you need to.

This year Baby Loss Awareness Week will focus on a general theme of ‘wellbeing’. We’ll be exploring what this means to people touched by pregnancy loss.
