Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awarenss Day ~ October 15th...

Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day is today, October 15th. Thousands and thousands of precious babies are lost before, during and after birth for a host of reasons. These enormous numbers are a "solid epidemic" according to Edwin Mitchell, MD, Professor pf Pediatrics, University of Auckland, Chair, ISPID, New Zealand.
By allowing these numbers to skyrocket is, "A measure of how we fail the greatness in our country", states Michael C. Lu, MD, MS, MPH, Associate Administrator, Maternal and Child Health, Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, USA.

Let's all make a difference where we can and educate all moms to recognize the signs of a baby in distress. Let's be educated, proactive and vigilant, thereby, giving all of our babies the chance to be great.

Please light a candle this evening at 7 pm remembering all our little ones. As for the families who live with the loss ~ "After ~ the test of courage is not to die but to live", Steve, Scully, SIDS & Stillbirth Dad, Senior Executive Producer and Political Editor, C-SPAN, USA...xo
