Let’s Break the Silence

12 October 2019

Blog, Clinical Negligence

Thousands of people in the UK are affected by the death of a baby or experience pregnancy loss yet it is still seen as a taboo subject.

There was a general debate on #BLAW2019 in Parliament on Tuesday the 8 October 2019 to raise awareness of Baby Loss Awareness Week.

The Policy Ask 2019 is aimed to help parents who lose a baby get the specialist and crucial mental health support they need, at the right time and place, free of charge, for everyone who needs it, wherever they live in the UK. To help support this issue, you can either contact your representative by email or Twitter to attend and/or wear a Baby Loss Awareness week pin.

Visit the website here for more information.

Baby Loss Awareness Week is a collaboration between charities which aims to raise awareness of pregnancy and baby deaths in the UK. Between the 9 and 15 October 2019, parents, families and friends unite to commemorate the lives of babies who have died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth and in infancy.

Baby Loss Awareness WeekThe care received by bereaved families following the death of a baby can have a long-lasting impact. Whilst it will not remove the pain or grief, it can help them through a heart-breaking time. In contrast, poor care can add to the distress; yet there are still many parents across the UK that do not receive the bereavement support they need.

This week hopes that awareness is raised for change in policy, research, bereavement care and support to those affected by the death of a baby. There are several ways to raise awareness. Watch as landmarks and buildings in your community turn blue and pink, watch and share the short animation on social media, or purchase the pin badge, wear and share you wearing it on social media using #babyloss or #BLAW2019.

Help us break the silence and call for improvement!

We instructed Williamsons to carry out the conveyancing on our house purchase. Gemma was excellent, keeping us up to date with the progress made towards completion by email and sending us the relevant paper work. She made us aware of any issues and suggested a course of action. We would highly recommend using Williamsons.

Handled our sale and purchase extremely well, first class.

We were delighted with the service we received. Although unable to speak to our designated officer Mrs Spooner, her assistant Natalie was always on hand to advise, particularly relevant on the final day when exchange and completion took place at the same time. A difficult period, not being helped by the long-distance, was made as easy as such a situation could ever be. Thank you.

I am new to Williamsons, my first time with them. It’s been a positive efficient and friendly experience. So much so that I won’t be going any where else in future. Thank you to all at Williamsons!
