Baby Loss and Acupuncture
Over my years of practicing Traditional five Element Acupuncture, I have cared for women and men who have lost a baby or child either as a miscarriage, baby or older, it is never an easy place to be. We all deal with grief and loss differently and all these must be respected. With the treatment I practice all aspects of how we function are cared for, helping each person find their way through these extremely tough times in their lives.
The saddest situations I find are when a parent has lost their child maybe years ago and never been given the space to grieve this loss and it has stayed with them and deeply affected their mental health.
Therefore I am glad that more parents are being supported and have access to information to help them and employers are being made aware that these parents need time.
This campaign is a very special one I encourage everyone to join in with lighting a candle and supporting their friends and family. (see below)
Please do contact me Hannah for care during and after baby/ child loss whether it was yesterday or twenty years ago, I am here to help. https://www.southwellacupuncture.co.uk/contact/

Get involved in 2019
If you are a bereaved parent or family member, a charity or a healthcare professional, there are plenty of ways to get involved.
From turning UK pink and blue, wearing a special pin badge to talking to your friends, family and colleagues about Baby Loss Awareness Week and taking part in the conversation online, you can help break the silence about pregnancy and baby loss.
Join the global “Wave of Light”
Baby Loss Awareness Week culminates with the global “Wave of Light” on 15th October, which is also recognised as International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
We would like to invite you to join other families across the world by lighting a candle at 7pm local time and leaving it burning for at least one hour to remember all babies that have died too soon. This can be done individually or in a group, at home or in a communal space.
To join our virtual Wave of Light, take a photo of your candle and post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #WaveOfLight at 7pm local time.
Wherever you do this, you will be joining a global ‘Wave of Light’ in memory of all the babies who lit up our lives for such a short time.
