The annual awareness week, now in its 17th year, is an opportunity for bereaved parents, families and friends, to commemorate babies’ lives and break the silence around pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.

The Wave of Light Service will take place on Tuesday 15th October 18.30 – 19.30 at St Elphin’s Church, Church Street, Warrington. WA1 2TL

Bereavement Support Sister Debbie Yates from Warrington Hospital said: “We hope that the Wave of Light Service will spark conversations about baby loss and give local bereaved parents and families an opportunity to talk about their precious babies.”

Bereavement Support Practitioner Pia Clay from Child Bereavement UK said, “Families who have lost a baby during pregnancy, during or soon after birth talk about the utter devastation, and a sense of loneliness and isolation, caused both by the loss and the fact that it is often not understood by others. Through this event, we hope families will feel that they are not alone and feel less isolated in their grief.”
