Alex Cunningham MP today lent his support to Baby Loss Awareness Week, and emphasised the need for the best support to be provided to bereaved parents.
Baby Loss Awareness Week is an annual event taking place this year from 9 – 15 October. Pregnancy and baby loss affects thousands of families each year across the UK. The death of a baby is a tragedy that can happen to anyone, at any time. It can be devastating, not only for parents, but also their families and their friends and can have long-term lasting effects. The Week is an opportunity for them to acknowledge and remember their precious babies and for people to talk openly about the subject of and raise awareness of pregnancy, baby and infant loss.
“I am pleased to support efforts to improve efforts to raise awareness of pregnancy and baby loss,and ensure families affected receive the best services and support”
