Pregnancy and Infant Loss – Saying Goodbye
Every October we recognize Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. It’s not a day most people know about, let alone take time to recognize, but it’s an important day for those who have lost a child. At Collage, as we work with women and men facing the reality of an unplanned pregnancy, we also want to remember those in our community who are dealing with the loss of a child through miscarriage, abortion, or as an infant.
For some women, a lost child is something you have kept to yourself, not sharing the grief with anyone else. For others, you have a community of support around you, helping take care of you. In either case, it is a hard road to walk, and one that only someone else who has experienced that loss can truly understand. We want you to know that you’re not alone and that if you ever need someone to talk to we’re here for you at Collage.
If you weren’t aware of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, we hope you take some time to either remember yourself or hug a friend who has experienced a loss.
