Each year, the 09th to 15th October marks Baby Loss Awareness Week, which gives bereaved parents, family and friends the opportunity to unite to remember their babies’ lives. It also aims to raise awareness about pregnancy and baby loss as well as promoting improvements in care and support for those so affected, and reducing preventable deaths.
The campaign confirms that the care that bereaved families receive from health and other professionals can have long-lasting effects, but unfortunately, the standard of care in the UK varies between regions meaning that some parents and families do not receive the quality of bereavement care that is essential to them following pregnancy or baby loss.
The campaign is led by Sands, a stillbirth and neonatal death charity, which aims to reduce death figures and improve bereavement care. Sands works in alliance with Bliss, The Lullaby Trust, The Miscarriage Association, The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust and Tommy’s as well as a vast range of other charitable organisations who are committed to achieving these aims. Details of the charities involved can be found at https://babyloss-awareness.org/organisations.
