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
@BLA_Campaign I'm heartened to see some media coverage (thanks @Independent) of the topic and in local newspapers but much of it was focused on breaking the silence rather than the theme of improving access to psychological support @BLA_Campaign #babylossawarenessweek #OutofSight
@BLA_Campaign @Independent As I said in my previous post, there feels like a missed opportunity to link the work of #BLAW2019 with the work of mental health charities also struggling to bridge the gap between asking to people to talk and the access to the support they need @BLA_Campaign
@BLA_Campaign @Independent It's not just a missed opportunity but unintentionally contributes to the fatigue and anger of those with lived experience when it comes to awareness days and their negative perception of them, reducing willingness to engage and participate #BLAW2019 @BLA_Campaign
@BLA_Campaign @Independent And it's not just an unwillingness, more so than years before I have seen bereaved parents really struggle with the media (and social media's) focus on awareness rather than change @BLA_Campaign #BLAW2019
@BLA_Campaign @Independent What makes it all the more baffling is that there is an interest in this area. Look at the coverage post @louistheroux documentary on mother / baby units and hard topics like suicide and psychosis @BLA_Campaign #BLAW2019 #OutOfSight
@BLA_Campaign @Independent @louistheroux And why won't terrestrial TV show @StillLovedDoc which highlights these issues around the long term mental health impacts of baby loss? @BLA_Campaign #BLAW2019 #OutOfSight
