International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day
Today, is the International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, which aims to highlight and offer information about this situation. In the UK, this is known as National Baby Loss Awareness Day.
Exact numbers are unknown but believed to be higher than 1 in 4 pregnancies which do not make it past 12 weeks. Everybody knows someone who has experienced this loss, including myself.
A common problem is the lack or unsympathetic care given to mothers in this difficult time. Mumsnet is currently running a campaign for Better Miscarriage Care, please offer your support for this important issue.
