Baby loss day
Parents and families will take time today to remember babies lost before or soon after birth.
Baby Loss Awareness Day acknowledges the 600 babies who die every year in New Zealand during pregnancy or less than a month after birth.
Wristbands bearing the slogan A Little Life, Not a Little Loss are available from support group Sands.
The non-profit organisation helps parents cope with the death of a baby.
