October 15: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

October 15 is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day

October marks Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, with October 15 a special day to remember all those who have lost babies and infants, whether through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, still birth or death of an infant.

Loss of a child, whether in the womb or after birth, is an incredibly painful experience. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, so many people in society and in our churches have experienced this grief personally. We have pulled together some resources to help churches acknowledge this day, and we hope that in doing so we can break the silence around miscarriage and infant infant loss, and bring comfort to those who grieve.

Please feel free to use any of these resources as they are, or adapt them to your needs.

All the resources are available here.
