Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018

Last updated by Chelsey Reynolds on Tuesday, February 5, 2019

The death of a baby is not a rare event. It can happen to anyone.


Every year, thousands of people in the UK are affected by the death of a baby or experience pregnancy loss. A collaboration between more than 60 charities across the UK, Baby Loss Awareness Week is held from 9 to 15 October to raise awareness about the key issues affecting those who have experienced pregnancy loss or baby death in the UK.


Watch and share the #BLAW2018 animation to raise awareness and commemorate babies who died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth and in infancy. Together we can #breakthesilence and call for improvements in services, care and support for families affected by the death of a baby.
