#babyloss October 15 Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day Thoughts - Join the Conversation ~

Kawartha Lakes Infant and Pregnancy Loss Supports - Sadly Lacking ~

October 15 is is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. One in four babies do not live. Chances are that if you yourself have not experienced the loss of a baby, someone you know has lost a baby. We searched the internet, and found some useful online resources. Unfortunately, we could find little in the form of local supports specifically for baby loss.  If you know of baby loss resources for City of Kawartha Lakes, please share them in the comments below. What resources did we find?
Here is an annotated list of baby loss resources you may find useful.
