October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness month. For some, you may have never felt or experienced this pain. For others this may be too raw and painful to acknowledge at this time. The sad truth is 1 in 4 women have experienced this type of loss through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, still birth or infant death. Many grieve in silence or have no one with whom to process their loss. As a mother of loss I want to know that your loss is important and you have a safe place to talk and grieve. As a doula I am here to support you
I will once again be participating in the Wave of Light for Remembrance Day, October 15th at 7pm around the world women will light a candle, for at least one hour, in remembrance of their little babies gone too soon. I will be lighting 7 candles again this year and invite you to light a candle in remembrance with me.
