Pinwheels for Pregnancy & Infant Loss
Hope Through Birth, a local pregnancy and infant loss non-profit, was honored to have our Pinwheels for Pregnancy and Infant Loss on display at Doey's House, on 11370 Caring Pathway Lane, during October. October is the recognized month for Pregnancy and Infant Loss. It provides awareness for those affected by miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death. On October 1st, Hope Through Birth & HWC will place pinwheels in honor of babies gone too soon locally here in Washington County. We offer a chance to personalize pinwheels in honor of your baby. Simply register below and our staff will place a pinwheel in honor of your baby. These pinwheels will be available for viewing at Doey's House between October 1st through 31st.
This opportunity provided validation for so many grieving parents who seek ways to remember their babies. Pregnancy and Infant loss are a taboo topic. No one wants to think about a baby dying, but the reality is that one in four women experience the loss of a baby. In the United States of America, there are an average of seventy-one mothers a day who give birth to a baby not born alive. Every second a mother gives birth through miscarriage and every minute a mother gives birth through stillbirth. This year, Hope Through Birth, wanted to help break the stigma and teach the world that it is okay to talk about our babies who have died. On behalf of our organization, we thank Hospice of Washington County and the community for allowing our babies to be remembered.
Hope Through Birth has a passion for helping bereaved parents know that they are not alone, and their babies are remembered. We connect families with local resources, provide Hope Care Packages, host memorial events, and awareness campaigns. Consider joining us in spreading awareness to pregnancy and infant loss in next year’s Pinwheels for Pregnancy and Infant Loss.
