Pregnancy and Infant Loss: Raising Awareness :

Pregnancy and Infant Loss: Raising Awareness

by Ellen M. DuBois on 10/10/19

My heart goes out to all who have lost a child. October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. The 15th of October is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. None of us want to belong to this group, yet we find our feet upon the same path. Together, we create a support group that reaches around the world because of the Internet, awareness, less isolation and places to share our feelings. Back when I lost my baby at 4 months, I searched for places to turn, books to read...anything. There wasn't much 25 plus years ago. It doesn't make the loss any easier, but the support that's available now because of raised awareness, the Internet, more books, more talking about it- well, these things make it a bit less isolating. As we honor the lives of our babies who left their footprints upon our hearts, may we also remember to reach out to others in need and ask for help if you need it. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love and Light to you, Ellen #miscarriage #babyloss #pregnancyloss #miscarriagesupport #october15 #pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonth #rememberingourbabies2019 #womenhelpingwomen #youarenotalone #yourlossmatters #ineverheldyou

Welcome to My name is Ellen DuBois and I am deeply sorry for your loss. is a support site for women and their families who have suffered the pain, loss and grief after miscarriage. I respond personally to each email and post and have been doing so since 2006. It's an outreach to me. I try to connect and give whatever support I can to those who have walked the often lonely road after miscarriage. Why? I don't want anyone to feel as alone as I did over twenty years ago after I miscarried. I'm not a doctor. 
I'm just a woman who's lived through it and am here to listen, share and provide a space for you to share with each other, too.- Love & comfort to you, Ellen
