Letterkenny University Hospital will be lit up in a special way this week in memory of all babies lost in pregnancy or at or soon after birth.

Baby Loss Awareness Week (09-15 October) is an international event that aims to raise awareness of the issues affecting families who have experienced the loss of a pregnancy or a baby.

On Tuesday 15th October, pink and blue light will shine on Letterkenny University Hospital as part of the ‘Wave of Light’ display.

The global event aims to let families know that they are not alone.

Throughout Ireland and across the world, landmarks and buildings will be illuminated in pink and blue on 15 October as part of a continuous wave of light around the globe in honour of babies who have died through miscarriage, stillbirth or in the neonatal period.
