The 9th of October marks the beginning of Baby Loss Awareness Week across the globe. For the last 18 years this week has aimed to bring awareness and support to the many people affected by baby loss, a topic that is very close to our hearts and a conversation that needs to be opened up more.
The global awareness week runs from 9th October to the 15th October and culminates in the Wave of Light on the 15th October to mark World Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day.
The annual Love Through Loss Commemoration Afternoon will be held on Friday 15th October, 5:30 pm – 7:30pm. The Commemoration Afternoon, held within the private gardens of Al Barari in Dubai, offers those families who they have seen through the devastation and heartache of pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and Neo-Natal a chance to come together in remembrance in a way that benefits each individual. Find more information and to register your details below using the link for a personalised star in your baby’s name before Wednesday 13th October 2021 at noon UAE time.
As part of the dedication to breaking down barriers for women in the region, and opening conversations that may be difficult to have in the mainstream, a number of incredible communities have come together to create Love Through Loss.
The first of its kind virtual event will take place on 12th October 2021 and is the culmination of a set of amazing organisations and women coming together. Thanks to the Love through Loss Organisation, IVF Support UAE, Small and Mighty Babies, TFMR Mamas and health and wellness agency TishTash, ANYONE effected by baby loss can come together to share, discuss and receive support and guidance.
