We share to show support and raise awareness.

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. If you or a loved one has experienced the tragic loss of a baby in pregnancy, birth, or infancy, the CDC has some valuable resources to encourage family advocacy, provide education, and locate community support groups for grieving families.
www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/stillbirth/resources.htmlDid You Know: Each year approximately 4.1 million deaths of infants less than one year old happen, an estimated 2.6 million stillbirths occur, and approximately 25% of pregnancies result in miscarriage.

International observance of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month provides the opportunity to increase understanding of individuals and families who experience the death of their children during pregnancy, at birth, in infancy and beyond. The month of October also provides the opportunity to consider how, as individuals and communities, we can better support individuals and families, while promoting greater awareness, and providing remembrance opportunities for the 1 in 4 individuals and families who lives are irrevocably touched by the death of their babies.

Whether you’ve experienced a baby loss in pregnancy, at birth, in infancy, or you wish to support a loved one who has, you are invited to share this post and pass it on to show your support and raise greater awareness.
