Redbridge Town Hall will be shining pink and blue this week in support of parents who have suffered the devastation of child loss.

The building will be illuminated from dusk until dawn to show Redbridge council’s backing for baby loss awareness week.

Baby loss occurs in many forms, including miscarriage, termination of pregnancy due to foetal abnormality, stillbirth, neonatal death, and post-natal including sudden infant death syndrome and sudden toddler death.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on baby loss has contacted organisations across the country to ask them to light up their buildings to mark the awareness week, which is in its 16th year.

Working alongside charities, healthcare providers and families the APPG on baby loss focusses on improving prevention, clinical care and support for the bereaved parents who experience natal and neonatal loss of an infant.

Redbridge Council Chief Executive Andy Donald said: “We hope that by turning the town hall pink and blue we can start a conversation locally about the issues surrounding baby loss and give bereaved parents and families an opportunity to talk about their precious babies.

“We know that baby loss affects many Redbridge families each year and this is not just about raising awareness but also acts as a mark of respect.”
