The air turns crisp, leaves begin to change color, and people everywhere are obsessed with pumpkin spice. While we throw on our flannel and knee high boots, look for fun Halloween activities that are worthy of our adulting status, 1 in 4 women are secretly hurting….secretly remembering their pregnancy loss.
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month was first declared by President Ronald Reagan on October 15, 1988. On that day he said: “When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn’t a word to describe them. This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. It is also meant to inform and provide resources for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes.“
On October 15th, Conceive Nebraska will be participating in No Footprint Too Small’s Wave of Light event.
