Light a candle: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Click to go to
Today, October 15th, is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.  In memory of babies who died in infancy or died before their parents could hold them, we light a candle every year.
Today is also the first full day of The Amethyst Network's opening. If you don't recall,The Amethyst Network is a new non-profit to connect specially trained professional and peer doulas (and, in time, counselors) with families going through or who have recently gone through pregnancy loss.  (Peer doulas are mothers who have experienced miscarriage themselves and have gone through the training to become doulas.)

Our goal is to have at least one doula in every state in six months, and at least one in every metro area in a year.  It's a worthy cause whose time has come, and we look forward to supporting families and educating the care providers and the public about this tender subject that has touched so many lives.

If you or someone you know has lost a baby, within or without the womb, please consider joining the Wave of Light in whatever time zone you live.
