Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month!

2 Blog posts in one day, but this one is a special one and I wanted to get it out before next week!

Did you know that October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month?  A month to support and raise awareness for all those who have had a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or infant loss.  The movement began in the U.S. in 1987 and it has been gathering momentum across the globe slowly.  On a personal note, this is important for me as in between my pregnancies I had 3 miscarriages.

October 15th in particular is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, and 7pm in ALL time zomes around the world is a time for lighting a candle for an hour to create a continuous wave of light for the entire day across the whole world.

The following site is dedicated to Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month and a great place to go for more information http://www.october15th.com/
