SANDS Awareness Month Campaign

EDM number 137 in 2016-17, proposed by Patricia Gibson on 06/06/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Charities, Children and families, Death and Health education and preventive medicine.

That this House is aware that June 2016 is SANDS Awareness Month; appreciates that during this month the charity will work hard to increase awareness of stillbirth and neonatal death; understands that the impact of losing a baby during pregnancy, at birth or shortly afterwards is devastating for all those affected; applauds SANDS for the excellent work it does to promote awareness of this issue and breaking the silence around what is often a taboo subject; is deeply concerned that over 100 babies in the UK will die each week during the month of June 2016; wishes the charity well in the inaugural year of its Walk a Mile in My Shoes event as well as continuing with its orange-themed events including Orange Fridays and Orange Challenge Events; supports the launch of SANDS' Research Fund to spearhead vital projects as well as other new initiatives that will help the charity speak out and call for improvements that will save more babies' lives in the future .

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
