pregnancy and infant loss awareness month

In October 1988, President Ronald Reagan declared October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. “When a child loses a parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses his/her partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn’t a word to describe them.” This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. It is also meant to inform and provide resources for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirth, birth defect, SIDS, and other causes.”
