Parents who have lost a baby are being encouraged to remember and commemorate them as part of Baby Loss Awareness Week.
The nationwide event is held annually from 9 to 15 October.
In Guernsey, The Ivy Trust supports those families who have experienced the death of a baby - either during pregnancy or soon after birth.
Shelley Samson founded the charity in 2014 after the death of her baby, Ivy
Just one of the initiatives she runs is the Pebble Project. The idea is that pebbles are hidden across the island for people to pick up and pass on to someone who will find meaning in the message they bring.
This year, they are placed at spots including Saumarez Park, Les Cotils and Cambridge Park.
During the awareness week, many charities and organisations collaborate to help break the taboo around baby loss - something Shelley feels is improving.
