National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day

Today, October 15th, is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day.

My heart goes out to my friends and others who have lost a child, whether already born or during pregnancy. That is a pain that I can only imagine.

According to I Am The Face, "One out of every four women will experience the loss of a baby at some point in their lives. That’s right–25%! Pregnancy/infant loss is an issue that while very common, is rarely talked about. Because it’s become such a “hush-hush” and taboo topic, those who experience it are often left to grieve in silence, alone." More facts are available here.

No one should be left to grieve alone. I encourage anyone affected by this silent issue who cares to share to do so, either in comments, or linking to a post of their own. This is a story that should be shared, so people can understand how best to help.

Folks can also add their voice to one of two websites: I Am the Face and October 15th.


  1. I am the Face, I have two little angels that were never even born. Blessings!

  2. I have one that wasn't born. I talk about him on my blog today.
