CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Few people are comfortable talking about pregnancy loss, but often parents who have suffered a loss need a way to express their grief. Michal Klau-Stevens, The Birth Lady joined us to share more about how to cope.
October 15 is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day
By Michal Klau-Stevens, The Birth Lady
It is a day for families and friends to remember all the babies that have passed too soon.
Either through miscarriage, pregnancy loss, stillbirth, neonatal loss, SIDS, or illness.
Light a candle on the evening of October 15 to create a Wave of Light around the world to honor those whose light was extinguished before it could shine bright.
