OCTOBER IS PREGNANCY, INFANT, AND CHILD LOSS AWARENESS MONTH

In 1988, President Ronald Regan proclaimed October Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is observed on October 15th each year and includes the International Wave of Light.

In the United States, 1 out of every 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage and 1 and every 160 pregnancies end in stillbirth. These numbers do not include infant death from preterm labor, diagnosis of life-limiting conditions, or SIDS.

But, the courageous mamas at PALS know that these are more than just numbers. These are our babies.

October: it’s our month, and we want you to know our babies.

Pregnancy After Loss Support is honoring Pregnancy, Infant, and Child Loss Awareness Month 2019 with our #KnowOurBabies campaign. We hope you’ll join us in telling the stories of your babies who died.
