Baby Loss Awareness Week

9 October 2023 - 15 October 2023

Baby Loss Awareness Week is held annually from 9 to 15 October. It’s a special opportunity to mark the lives of babies lost in pregnancy or at or soon after birth.

The week aims to share how the pregnancy and baby loss community is there for people every step of the way, during and after loss. you don’t have to navigate pregnancy loss alone.

This year you can take part in your own 4-mile Memory Walk at 4pm on Sunday 15 October. Wherever the location, we hope this walk will bring people together in spirit, remembering those tiny lives lost too soon while also helping others in the future.

At the end of the week, 15 October, you may like to take part in the annual global Wave of Light. People around the world light a candle or candles at 7pm local time in memory of the baby or babies they have lost. Photos of these candles on social media create a wave of light that spreads across the globe.

You can join this virtual wave of light by adding your photo on the night, with the hashtag #WaveofLight.
