Macro flowers: Baby Loss Awareness Week October 9-15 ,2011.

When I see the millions of spring flowers on my tree, yet only a few develop into fruits. I see a parallel of many babies who don't survive and have a full life. I think of the bereaved parents whose hearts are hurting this week, their branches once laden with beautiful flowers of promise. But now are empty and barren branches. Ann Chin.

9th Oct-15th Oct.

People whose lives have been touched by the loss of a baby during pregnancy or just after birth are uniting with others across the UK to show their support for the Baby Loss Awareness campaign 2011, which focuses on International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day on October 15th.

We also hope that health and social care workers will be able to display our poster, information leaflet and ribbon pins in their clinics and surgeries.

Ribbon pins are available in return for a suggested minimum donation of £1. These can be ordered online or by post, on the Ribbons page.

We hope that the Awareness campaign will give bereaved parents, their families and friends the opportunity to commemorate the brief lives of their babies. With the purchase of a ribbon pin, you will be supporting the organisations in their vital work with bereaved families and health and social care workers.

Your blossoms are very beautiful but your story is very sad today.
It's the greatest loss for a parent.
