Helping women with chronic illnesses

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Remembrance Day

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Remembrance Day.

Chances are that you know someone whose life has been touched by such a loss. Perhaps you know someone affected by such a loss and you are not even aware of it because our society doesn’t tend to encourage people to talk openly about it.

If you are aware of someone who has experienced such a loss, I encourage you to take a moment to acknowledge that person or persons and let them know that you are thinking about them.

Watch Tori Amos speak about her miscarriages here.

Thank you.

This is such a nice thing to post, Jeanne. So sweet of you.

Having had 3 miscarriages myself I know a sweet word from someone would be a good thing.

I’m so sorry for your losses. I will never forget the story you once wrote… about a time years ago when your relatives saw you with red eyes (after crying) and they thought allergies had made your eyes red and teary – when really you were dealing with a devastating loss. When I read what you wrote (so many years later), I wanted to reach through the screen and give you a big hug. I wish I could give you a hug right now. My thoughts go out to those who are grieving losses today. Our society really needs to support the men and women who are coping with such losses.

Yes, that was a hard hard time, being home in Canada with my sister and cousin who had their babies and me so sad.

Thanks for being so sweet, Jeanne.

I’m sorry you went through such a hard time. Sadly, so many women suffer losses such as that while feeling surrounded by others’ babies in the same general time period and it’s really difficult emotionally. 🙁

Thank you for sharing your story. You never know when doing so might help someone else reading it. 😉
