Baby Loss

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

Getting The Support You Need...

If you have lost a baby in pregnancy or soon after I am very sorry. You may be experiencing a whole host of difficult and confusing feelings, from sadness and devastation to anger and guilt. Having a place where you can get support, information and speak to someone who understands can have a huge impact on your mental health and how you manage your grief.

Below is a list of some of the resources available to you, where you can access help, support and information. If you are a friend, colleague or family member you will also find advice on ways you can support them.

Remember, it is ok to not feel ok, and to ask for help and support whenever you need it.

Raising Awareness About Pregnancy and Baby Death in the UK. 9th - 15th October

It's Baby Loss Awareness Week and one of its aims this year is to call on Government to act, so that parents who have been through pregnancy or baby loss have the right support, at the time they need it and free of charge. If there is not the appropriate support available when a baby dies, people may go onto suffer with more severe mental health issues later on. Find out more by visiting
