National Baby Loss Awareness Service

Inaugurated in 2002 as part of the Baby Loss awareness campaign, 15th October has become a special day for the many people affected by pregnancy or baby loss, and those who care for them.

Developed through the collaboration of the ARC (Antenatal Results and Choices), the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust, the Miscarriage Association and Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death), the aim is to promote awareness and understanding of the impact of pregnancy and baby loss amongst the community at large.
 
As part of this year’s events we are planning a short remembrance service in St Mary’s Church, Melton Mowbray, on Tuesday, 15th October starting at 6.30pm, and closing with the lighting of candles at 7pm. This closing act will link in with the International Wave of Light where bereaved parents and support organisations throughout the world will light their candles at 7pm local time.
