Baby Loss Awareness Week is an opportunity for parents and guardians, family and our society to raise awareness of those bereaved by the loss of a child, Sinn Féin’s Elisha McCallion has said.
The week-long initiative encourages bereaved parents to reach out, and for all to identify possible policy measures relating to troubled pregnancies and baby loss.
The Foyle MP said:
“We all know someone affected by this issue, as families or friends of those who have lost a prematurely lost a child.
“Baby Loss Awareness Week gives us all an opportunity to reach out to loved ones and to talk about bereavement.
“As public representatives, we also have a responsibility to ensure the necessary support is in place for affected families, which may serve as some comfort in a time of need.”
