Each year The Lullaby Trust joins other leading baby charities to raise awareness of baby loss and campaign to secure the support of MPs for the provision of better bereavement care.

Baby Loss Awareness Week takes place 9-15th October. During this week families all over the world commemorate the lives of their babies and share memories of the all too brief time they had together.

The week ends with the global Wave of Light on 15th October, where candles are lit across the globe as part of international Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

The charities leading Baby Loss Awareness Week provide support to anyone affected by pregnancy loss and the death of a baby, and work with health professionals and services to improve care.
