The death of a baby is not a rare event. It can happen to anyone.
From 9th-15th October 2020, #BabyLossAwarenessWeek UK will go ahead for it’s 18th year.
Every year, Baby Loss Awareness Week aims to raise awareness about pregnancy and baby death in the UK. This year we are highlighting the isolation many people experience after pregnancy and baby loss – women, partners, other family members and friends.
The effect of social distancing from Covid-19 has had a major impact on access to care and support and has complicated grief and responses to pregnancy and baby loss. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, feelings of isolation have become more widespread around the world and many people have begun to talk more openly about loneliness.
