I'm probably going to write a #babylossawarenessweek debrief soon but would like to say a few things about why the campaign is important @BLA_Campaign
@BLA_Campaign I'm still speaking to bereaved parents that are struggling to find the psychological support they need. #babylossawarenessweek #OutofSight
One mother did manage to get counselling after an 18 week wait. The counselling was held in the antenatal ward @BLA_Campaign #babylossawarenessweek #OutOfSight

I'm seeing a lot of flack directed at awareness weeks. I can see they are problematic and can be viewed as a cheap way of acknowledging an issue without addressing the root causes / issues underpinning them.
Particularly around mental health there is a justifiable anger about focus on certain more 'acceptable' forms over others and the gaping void between intent and outcome of 'talk to someone'.
Awareness weeks are a chance for people with lived experience to come forward, talk about it and encourage others to either talk of their own if ready or seek support.
