Baby Loss Awareness Month
24th November, 2023

Baby Loss Awareness Month is observed in October each year. It is a time dedicated to raising awareness about pregnancy and infant loss and providing support to those who have experienced the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death. During this month, various organizations and individuals work to break the silence and stigma surrounding baby loss, promote understanding and empathy, and offer resources and support to bereaved parents and their families.

One of the key events during Baby Loss Awareness Month is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, which is observed on October 15th each year. On this day, people around the world light candles in memory of the babies they have lost, and various events and activities are held to honour and remember these children.

The goal of Baby Loss Awareness Month is to create a supportive and compassionate environment for those who have experienced the devastating loss of a baby and to foster open conversations about this often-taboo subject. It also aims to drive awareness of the need for improved research, medical care, and emotional support for families affected by pregnancy and infant loss.

10%-20% of pregnancy’s ends in miscarriage. Each year, 2.4 million new-born’s die, 1.9 million babies are stillborn and 295,000 women die globally during pregnancy or childbirth. More than 800,000 new-borns die on the first day of life, making the day of birth the most dangerous day for babies in nearly every country.
