Sands Awareness MonthMay 30, 2017 // No Comments
June is Sands Awareness Month, when the charity works hard to increase awareness of stillbirth and neonatal death and the everlasting impact experienced when a precious baby dies during pregnancy, at birth or shortly afterwards. While many more people are aware of the pain of baby loss because of the work of Sands and others, many people still have no idea and it remains a taboo subject. The charity has made a lot of progress in breaking the silence, but there is a long way to go. This is a chance for us all to do our bit, no matter how small, to make people listen; to highlight the fact that over 100 babies will die each week during the month of June and to raise vital funds so that Sands can continue to support, research, and improve.
