Since 1988, October has been recognized as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.  Few know this.  In fact, I did not know this until 2004.

Did you know there are 26,000 stillbirths each year in the United States?  One in every 115 deliveries end in stillbirth.

Please take time to check out some of these websites and let’s increase awareness of these tragic deaths.  Maybe with more awareness, we can get closer to finding a solution.
