Baby Loss Awareness Week is held annually from 9 to 15 October. It includes the loss of a baby in pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond. The week ends in a celebration of remembrance with the Wave of Light.
1 in 4 women experience a miscarriage
1 in 4 women experience a miscarriage. Yes, that’s 25 percent of the female population who fall pregnant will hear that their hopes of raising a child with that pregnancy have been shattered.
Yet how many women have you heard actually talk about their loss? Unfortunately, miscarriage is still seen as a taboo subject. It is only when you experience one, do you then realise how many people around you have gone through the same traumatic experience.
