Join us for the month of October as we raise awareness of Cholestasis of Pregnancy and share our community stories of loss and rainbow babies. The ICP Care family honors and remembers all of your precious babies lost. Our community surrounds you with love. Let’s spread awareness and raise funds to continue our lifesaving mission to help prevent stillbirth. We fight the itch to save babies lives. Without diagnosis and 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.”
Join us on October 15 in honoring all of the precious loved babies during the international Wave of Light. This is an event held every year on Oct. 15 at 7:00 pm (your local time). The ICP Care family honors bereaved parents, families and friends and remembers all of your precious babies gone too soon.
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!
