Supporting colleagues through pregnancy loss

Sadly, an estimated one-in-four pregnancies can end in miscarriage. North Ayrshire Council has signed up to the Pregnancy Loss Pledge, which demonstrates a commitment to providing the best support we can to any employee experiencing pregnancy loss.

All staff can find out more about the help and support available, to both managers and employees, from The Pledge.

Promoted by The Miscarriage Association, Baby Loss Awareness Week – always held in October – is now in its 20th year.

The Council, alongside more than 100 other charities as well as various groups and organisations, are continuing to do our part to raise awareness of key issues that affect people who have lost a baby.

The Miscarriage Association is there to provide support and information to anyone affected by pregnancy loss, however recent or long ago. If you would like to talk with one of the helpline support workers – by phone, email or live chat – the contact details can be found on the website here.
