Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020
With Baby Loss Awareness Week just around the corner I thought I would take this opportunity to talk to you about Baby Loss Awareness week and how you can get involved. Baby Loss Awareness week is held on the 9th-15th October.
The annual awareness week, now in its 18th year, is an opportunity for bereaved parents, families and friends, to commemorate babies’ lives and break the silence around pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.
So how can you get involved? Lighting up Pink and Blue
You can get involved and help raise awareness of baby loss by decorating your home in blue and pink. This could be as simple as taping blue and pink tissue paper to your window or by lighting up your home in blue and pink using outdoor lighting.
Join in with the wave of light
Most people light a candle at 7pm on the15th October to join in the global Wave of Light. The global wave of light is an opportunity to join other bereaved parents and families to commemorate babies who left us too soon.
Sponsor a heart or star in your baby’s name
As part of baby loss awareness week we at Morgan’s Wings are working closely with Coles Funeral Home and James Summers in Cardiff. They both have a memorial tree that will be displayed during baby loss awareness week. If you would like to sponsor a heart or a star in memory of your baby to be displayed on these trees please have a look at our website or social media posts.
Buy and wear your baby loss ribbon.
Our volunteers have been working hard to create these baby loss ribbons to help raise awareness. These ribbons are available from volunteers or from our online shop. All proceeds from the sale of these ribbons will help us support parents going through miscarriage.
