Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020

Held annually between 9 – 15 October, this is an opportunity for bereaved parents, family members and friends to commemorate the all-too-brief lives of their babies and pregnancies, knowing that thousands of other families around the world understand how they feel and will be doing the same.

The week also presents the chance for people to talk openly about the subject of and raise awareness of baby loss and pregnancy loss.

The week culminates with Baby Loss Awareness Day on Sunday 15 October and the poignant global Wave of Light at 7pm. During this wave of light, we remember the babies that have died during pregnancy, at, during or after birth by lighting a candle at 7pm and leaving it to burn for at least one hour.

You can also choose to share your candle with everyone on Facebook and/or Twitter and/or Instagram, if you so wish. However you choose to mark your loss, you will be uniting with others across the world in honour of those pregnancies and babies who lit up our lives for such a short time and we hope this event can bring some comfort.

From Saturday 10th OCtober the Church will be lit up each night in blue and pink in a show of support for all those affected by baby loss
