St George’s Hall will be illuminated in pink and blue lights from 9th to 15th October 2018 to show Liverpool’s support for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018 (9th to 15th October).
The annual awareness week, now in its 16th year, is an opportunity for bereaved parents, families and friends, to commemorate babies’ lives and break the silence around pregnancy and baby loss in the UK.
Caron Lappin, Director of Nursing & Midwifery from Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust said: “We hope turning St George’s Hall pink and blue will spark conversations about baby loss which is still seen as a taboo subject in today’s society and can be a very isolating experience for families to go through. We hope this gives bereaved parents and families an opportunity to talk about their precious babies.“
