October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. This month of awareness is used to share community resources and support for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes.
We have compiled some community resources and upcoming events. If you have information or insight please get in touch at email@example.com.
A Walk to Remember
In recognition of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in October, Bellin Health in conjunction with Share of Northeast Wisconsin, is hosting a 1-2 mile walk at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary on October 16th, 2021. We invite you along with your friends, family and any other members of our community that have experienced pregnancy or infant loss in honoring all of your children at the Nature center. Join us for family-friendly activities, a special ceremony and bubble release in remembrance of all the little ones gone too soon. This event will be held rain or shine and there is no charge to participate. All are welcome!
See their Facebook event for complete information.
We Remember Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support
This private Facebook group offers support for those who have suffered pregnancy or infant loss, including miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy and infant death. Membership to the group is open to all who have experienced one of these losses, as well as their family and friends who wish to support them. Monthly meetings are on hold due to the pandemic, but individuals from the group often connect for smaller meetups on their own.
