Loss of Baby Awareness and Bereavement

Share This Post

We chaired a panel discussion on baby loss awareness and bereavement.

Attendees were able to hear from women who shared their experience of losing their baby.

We were pleased to have males in the room who shared their experience of losing their child. Men talking about baby loss is an area we want to encourage.

Many important points came out of this session including that there is a great inconsistency in the support that individuals and couples face when they lose a child, there is still a great level of insensitivity in being placed back on a maternity ward where mothers are there with their newborn babies, which can only reinforce the impact of their loss.

We spoke about the lack of empathy experienced by individuals who have lost their children and empathy should not just be from the bereavement counsellor but their entire staff team.  Leaflets are just not helpful at a time of trauma, when couples reported they would much rather speak to someone in their time of need and not be forced to wait for years for counselling.

We want to see better education around grief and bereavement in schools as grief and bereavement impacts the whole family and that includes children.  There was a huge amount of emotion in the room.  We heard from a victim of the Alder Hey scandal too.

It is so important the Health Board attends discussions like this and actively participates. Sadly this did not happen on this occasion but our report of recommendations and experiences will be filed with the Health Board.

Photographs of the session can be found here.

I was delighted to have the opportunity to become the operations manager for the Bushra Ali Group Global CIC. You will find me looking after day-today operations for the CIC, communicating with speakers, panel members and members of the community and organising new events. I am a creative at heart and so I enjoy working on our graphic design and managing our social media accounts.

I am passionate about community work. It is very important to have a safe space to share conversations that would normally happen behind closed doors. By discussing issues that affect us, we realise that we are not alone in our experiences and feelings. By coming together to share, we can bring about positive and long-lasting change. We are providing the safe space for these conversations to happen and for learning to take place.

Our Be the Change Empowering You project is one that is very close to my heart as I have lived experience of domestic abuse. I understand how important help, support and education is to those trying to break the cycles of abuse. Many courses to help you understand and recover from that abuse are available after you are no longer with the abuser. Those courses are indeed life changing and I can testify to that. However, that knowledge would have made such a difference if it had been received earlier and I believe that sharing life skills to empower women to understand abuse behaviours, to see that those behaviours are not ‘normal’, to seek protection much earlier and to know that they are not alone are absolutely critical.

Please know that you are not alone and we are here with you.
