BABY LOSS AWARENESS WEEK - 9-15TH OCTOBER

Today marks the start of Baby Loss Awareness Week.


As someone who had a stillborn son at full term, I know how important this week is to reflect and remember our lost babies.


As usual, I will again be leading for the Scottish National Party (SNP) in the annual Baby Loss Debate in the UK House of Commons, on Thursday 19th October. This is always an emotional but very important debate.


My own baby's death in 2009 was entirely preventable and still far too many babies are lost unnecessarily across the whole UK. We need to do better.


Baby Loss Week culminates in Baby Loss Awareness Day on 15th October, on what would have been my own son's - Baby Kenneth's - 14th birthday.
