October: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is officially the month to raise awareness for pregnancy and infant loss.  

In 1988 October was declared Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in the United States with a Presidential Proclamation from Ronald Reagan (see below for a short history of the month). This month is dedicated throughout the world to raising awareness of infant and pregnancy loss and to honouring and remembering babies and infants who died due to miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, SIDS and all infant deaths.  {from Stillbirth Alliance}
You can read more about how this month was dedicated for Infant and Pregnancy Loss here.  Tomorrow is October 15th and there are many candle light vigils, walks and other events to honor our precious babies.  There will be a worldwide candle lighting event on Saturday October 15th...

We invite you all to join us in seeking worldwide recognition for the Month of October as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month and October 15th as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day which is intended to promote the Wave of Light Celebration
 (7-8 pm in every time zone, light a candle to honor all babies who have died.)

Below are a few links to other events you might be interested in......
