October Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day
We are heartbroken to add new names to our In Loving Memory banner each year. Without proper treatment, Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy’s (ICP’s) most devastating risk is stillbirth.
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month was first declared by President Ronald Reagan on October 15, 1988. On that day he said:
“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.”
The ICP Care family honors and remembers all of your precious babies lost. Our community surrounds you with love.
Spread the word. Share your ICP story on social media to bring awareness this month. Talk to everyone you know about Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy. Itching in pregnancy may not be normal.
Fight the Itch, Save a Life!
Together we are saving babies lives.
