Baby Loss Awareness Week 'Is Opportunity To Talk'

Sinn Féin's Elisha McCallion has said that Baby Loss Awareness Week is an opportunity for parents and guardians, family and our society to raise awareness of those bereaved by the loss of a child.

The week-long initiative encourages bereaved parents to reach out, and for all to identify possible policy measures relating to troubled pregnancies and baby loss.

She said: "We all know someone affected by this issue, as families or friends of those who have lost a prematurely lost a child.

"Baby Loss Awareness Week gives us all an opportunity to reach out to loved ones and to talk about bereavement.

"As public representatives, we also have a responsibility to ensure the necessary support is in place for affected families, which may serve as some comfort in a time of need."

In the UK, Baby Loss Awareness Week is a collaboration between more than 40 charities.

Baby Loss Awareness Week takes place every year from 9 – 15 October. Throughout the week, bereaved parents, their families and friends, unite with each other and others across the world to commemorate their babies' lives.

It also provides a chance to raise awareness about the issues surrounding pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.
