The Pregnancy Loss and Infant Death Alliance (PLIDA) has a unique purpose: to provide a formal network and a unified international presence to increase awareness and education focused on the emotional experiences and needs of bereaved families. PLIDA’s goal is to become a central place for parent-advocates, and interested professionals, media, and policy makers to find information on the emotional aspects of pregnancy loss and infant death. PLIDA also organizes the biennial International Perinatal Bereavement Conference (www.perinatalbereavementconference.org) .

PLIDA was formally organized in September 2002, by a diverse group of pioneering and nationally recognized professionals who are dedicated to providing support to parents suffering the death of a baby during pregnancy, birth, or infancy. Many have experienced this grief in their own lives.
