What is BLAW?

Baby Loss Awareness Week

Baby Loss Awareness Week runs from 9th to 15 October each year.  The main aims of the week are:



Raising Awareness


Driving Change

BLAW: Inventory

Join In

Join us in turning Ayrshire Pink & Blue, light a candle on the 15th and/or hold a ribbon event


Turn Ayrshire Pink & Blue

From landmarks, public buildings, shops and homes

We ask each year for as many places as possible to light up pink & blue to remember all babies lost and show support to all bereaved families.  If you are lighting up Pink & Blue this year, please send us your pictures.


Wave of Light

Join the global #WaveOfLight

Unite with other bereaved familes all across the world.  Light a candle in memory of your wee one at 7pm on 15th October, then if you choose post a photo on your social media.

Ribbon Remembrance

How to get involved

Perhaps your local library, doctor’s surgery, hospital or workplace would be happy to host a remembrance wall/tree and display for Baby Loss Awareness Week. Get permission to have your display during 9 – 15 October.

Or use your own windows at home, make you own ribbons and use to decorate or download the ribbon and bunting template, print and cut out the ribbons and use them to decorate your display
