Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day by Michal Klau-Stevens

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

By Michal Klau-Stevens, The Birth Lady


October 15 is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. 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.

On October 15 at 7 pm in every time zone around the world people will light candles and let them burn for at least an hour to remember the losses they have suffered, and celebrate the lives that could have been. The Wave of Light is an international event where the result is a continuous chain of light spanning the globe for a 24 hour period in honor and remembrance of the children who die during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
