Lighting up the library for Baby Loss Awareness Week

Sponsored by the Lily Mae Foundation

Baby Loss Awareness WeekOn Friday the exterior facade of the Library of Birmingham will be lit up pink and blue in support of Baby Loss Awareness Week, sponsored by the Lily Mae Foundation.

The Baby Loss Awareness Week website states:

Baby Loss Awareness Week is a wonderful opportunity to bring us together as a community and give anyone touched by pregnancy and baby loss a safe and supportive space to share their experiences and feel that they are not alone.

This year our theme is Wellbeing and we will be exploring what this means to people from all walks of life who have been affected by pregnancy and baby loss. We recognise that health workers, who have been under immense pressure during the pandemic, can only look after bereaved families with empathy and kindness if they themselves are supported, and we are here for them too.

Parents and families tell us how important it is that they each find a way to remember their baby in a way that suits them. Some join with others at special services organised by their local hospital or a local support organisation, some find solace in events organised by their faith community while others will remember alone in a way unique to them. It is important to remember there is no right or wrong way and it can change as the years pass too.
