October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. The Perinatal Bereavement Program at Arnot Ogden Medical Center hosted a memorial gathering Sunday afternoon.
The program is called “Grief Shared is Grief Diminished.” The gathering was held for family, friends and caretakers of persons who have experienced a loss of pregnancy or infant death.
By getting together and sharing their stories families are able to reaffirm that their babies have not been forgotten.
The memorial gathering is just one part of the supportive services for bereaved parents offered by Arnot Health.
