Every year we at TimeNorfolk join with others to recognise Baby Loss Awareness Week in the UK – this year it is taking place between 9th– 15thOctober and the theme this time is around wellbeing.
The last year has been challenging on many levels and for those who have experienced baby loss there has been an increased sense of isolation and difficulty. For some it was attending a scan on their own, or struggling after a loss when close friends and family were unable to visit and offer support in person. This year has been exceptionally difficult for those grieving the loss of a little one and prioritising wellbeing has never been more important.
You can engage with Baby Loss Awareness Week and hear more about the theme of wellbeing and baby loss by following the hashtag #BLAW2021 on social media and get involved. During the week there will be a different focus each day around wellbeing and on the final day is the Wave of Light. You are all invited to light a candle in memory of a little one on Friday 15thOctober at 7pm.
TimeNorfolk Events During Baby Loss Awareness Week
Doorway of Hope Service
Norwich Cathedral 10thOctober 6pm
You are invited to join us at Norwich Cathedral for a service of remembrance for those who have lost a baby, no matter how long ago. Whether through miscarriage, termination, stillbirth, pregnancy loss of any kind or in the early months of life.
Many people who experience pregnancy loss feel they didn’t get the chance to say goodbye, the Doorway of Hope service can enable some of us to do this.
During the service there will be an opportunity to light a candle and write in the TimeNorfolk book of remembrance.
Norwich Cathedral 10thOctober at 6pm.

One client says:‘Our arms will always ache for what should be, for the missed moments and stolen years. The longing to hold our baby will never leave, it leaves a painful ache that can’t be filled or replaced. With the support of Time Norfolk we are given opportunities to heal and a safe place to tell our story. Our precious baby girl is part of our story. Her story is a love story worth telling.’
