Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. While 1 in 4 pregnancies end in a loss, many still suffer in silence. PLIDA’s mission is to promote the highest quality of consistent, evidence-based perinatal bereavement care for all families who experience the tragic loss of a baby. We express this mission by providing continuing education and the resources that care providers and parent advocates need to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to the families they serve.
