Baby Loss Awareness Week Alliance

Many charities involved in Baby Loss Awareness Week work every day to prevent baby and infant deaths, pregnancy loss and maternal deaths.

But for Baby Loss Awareness Week, we come together to talk about what could be done right now to better support families affected by the death of a baby.

Bliss is one of over 80 charities from across the UK who collaborate during Baby Loss Awareness Week, which takes place every year from 9th to 15th October.

The Baby Loss Awareness Week Alliance are committed to raising awareness of pregnancy and baby loss, providing support to anyone affected by pregnancy loss and the death of a baby, working with health professionals and services to improve bereavement care, and reducing preventable deaths.

Baby Loss Awareness Week is an opportunity:

  • To support bereaved parents and families and to unite with others across the world to commemorate their babies’ lives and lost pregnancies.
  • To raise awareness about pregnancy and baby loss.
  • To drive improvements in care and support for anyone affected and in the prevention of pregnancy and baby loss.
