The loss of a baby is one of the most painful things that can happen to a family. If your baby died during pregnancy, in the first days of life, or even as an infant, you and your family may need support to find ways to deal with your grief and ease your pain.
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day – a time to pause and remember all angel babies.
It is important to know that parents and families are not alone in their grief. Connecting with others going through the same or a similar situation can help you process your grief. We invite all families to share and connect in our online community Share Your Story. The families in our community know what you are going through and can offer support during this devastating time and in the days ahead.
We provide resources that may help you understand what happened and how to deal with the daily pain of your loss. We encourage you to visit our website if you are looking for resources for families that have lost a baby or ways to remember your baby.
Loss affects entire families every day, in different ways. Read one heartfelt story of loss as seen through the eyes of a sibling.
The March of Dimes is so very sorry for your loss. We are here for you.
