***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***
No one or nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of a child and it’s the last thing you think of when you find out your expecting a child. The grief and devisation is something I can’t even imagine and my heart goes out to any family that has ever had go through this horrible experience of pregnancy and/or infant loss. Coping is often a lifetime struggle and support is always needed for the hundreds of thousands of families struck by this terrible circumstance.
“In October 1988, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. “When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn’t a word to describe them. This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. It is also meant to inform and provide resources for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes.”” – Remembering Our Babies
Since October has been declared “Awareness Month”, Robyn Bear, founder of www.october15th.com chose a day, in the middle of the month to become, “Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day” (PAILRD). On this day, everyone in all times zones, worldwide, join in a candle lighting ceremony at 7pm on October 15th. I will definitely be doing this in remembrance of all the little angels gone too soon.
