Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Week

Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Week logo

Each year the 9th - 15th October is Baby Loss Awareness Week and throughout the week bereaved parents, family members and friends can commemorate the all-too-brief lives of their babies, knowing that thousands of other families elsewhere in the world will be doing the same. The week also provides a crucial opportunity for people to talk openly about the subject of and raise awareness of baby loss.   

The week ends with Baby Loss Awareness Day on 15th October. October 15th is recognised as Pregnancy and infant Loss Remembrance Day across the world. Here in the UK we would like to invite you to take part in the global 'Wave of Light'. On this day, everyone is invited to take part in this global event to remember all the babies that have died during pregnancy, at, during or after birth.

At footsteps we changed our charity shop window to a pink and blue theme and on the 15th we placed paper hearts with remembrance messages on them in our shop window too.

We also had a remembrance thread on our Facebook Page. facebook logo
