There’s been so much wonderful press surrounding Breast Cancer Awareness month, and here’s another cause I didn’t want to get lost in the fray.
October 15th has been nationally named the Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Only recently passed in congress! I learned of this on the Peapod Announcement website. They have a complete explanation of it here.
It’s a sensitive subject and I think all of us, as mothers (whether we’ve experienced a miscarriage, infant loss or not) can appreciate the importance of such a day and cause.
100% of all proceeds on the Peapod Announcement site on Sunday, October 15th will be donated to Share, the nonprofit organization for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness.

    I think this is wonderful. I am a Neonatal ICU nurse, so I have dealt with parents who lose their infants on a daily basis. Also parents who have miscarried once, or numerous times in the past, only to lose a child to stillbirths, prematurity or complications of; or miscarriage once again. It is so sad and the bereavement programs most NICU's have are wonderful but don't recognize these tragedies in the years to come.
