Baby Loss Awareness Week

EDM number 524 in 2016-17, proposed by Patricia Gibson on 12/10/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families and Death.

That this House supports Baby Loss Awareness Week which runs from 9 October to 15 October 2016, involving 21 pregnancy and baby loss charities in the UK to mark the brief lives of babies lost in pregnancy or soon after birth; understands the devastating impact that baby loss has on parents and the wider family; pays tribute to all the charities and organisations which support parents and families through the ordeal of losing a baby; further understands that more research and work to prevent stillbirth is required to improve the current figures which compare unfavourably to other European countries; is aware that there is a taboo around baby loss which is not helpful in tackling this important issue; and looks forward to the culmination of this week on 15 October 2016, International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, when people around the world will light a candle at 7pm to create a wave of light in memory of babies who have died.

This motion has been signed by a total of 60 MPs.
