Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020 Starts 9th October 2020

Highlighting the isolation many people experience after pregnancy and baby loss – women, partners, other family members and friends.

The effect of social distancing from Covid-19 has had a major impact on access to care and support and has complicated grief and responses to pregnancy and baby loss.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, feelings of isolation have become more widespread around the world and many people have begun to talk more openly about loneliness. Now more than ever, we can let those affected by pregnancy and baby loss know they are not alone and that we are all here to support them.

So, this year, everyone is invited to come together, share their experiences and show their support for those who have experienced the loss of a baby – whether or not they have been directly affected themselves.

On line events happening all week from Friday 9th October. For more information go to the website

Downham Market Town Councillors recognise the loss of a child at any age can be devastating, and will pause to remember everyone in this situation at a later date.
