The event is open to anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby at any time during pregnancy or after delivery. Candlelight service and prayer will take place near the park fountain at the corner of 22nd Street and Lexington Avenue.

“As we prepare to gather for our tenth observance of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, my hope is to reach the parents in our region who’ve lost little ones,” said Cathie Whitt, RN, Labor and Delivery. “We are here both to remember and to honor their short lives. Their babies are precious, important, and loved!”

The Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Group meets at 7 p.m. the second Thursday of every month in the KDMC Health Education Center (lower level of the Lexington Avenue parking facility). New members are welcome.
