Pregnancy Loss and Infant Awareness Day!

Did you know that October 15 is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day? Many people aren't aware that this day has been designated a national day of remembrance for miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss.

The resolution to declare October 15 a remembrance day passed the United States House of Representatives on September 28, 2006. It was the result of tireless efforts by a group of miscarriage awareness activists led by Robyn Bear, who had six first-trimester miscarriages in the span of 1997 through 1999 before ultimately receiving a diagnosis of balanced translocation.

I haven't talked about this on my blog but I have had 5 miscarriages. Yes, it's a rough road and something that I thought I would never have to endure. But by the grace of God I have survived. My last miscarriage was December 31, 2009. I was 9 weeks along. So, if you know someone that has experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss I challenge you to pray for them.


  1. Love this post, thank you so much for posting it! I've had 2 miscarriages so glad you posted this.

  2. Bless your heart. So sorry to hear of your miscarriages. You are in my prayers. Susie

  3. Experiencing a loss is hard. I'm glad that a day is dedicated to the brave and strong women who had to experience a miscarriage and/or infant loss. I lost my daughter in 2006 and not a day goes by that I don't think of her.
