The following is a news release from PILA of Lubbock:
October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month as decreed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988. One in four pregnancies end in loss and those who have lost generally grieve in silence.
The City of Lubbock will be recognizing October as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month at the City Council Meeting, Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness (PILA) of Lubbock invites you to our Seventh Annual Memorial Service as we remember all babies lost to pregnancy or infant loss. We are pleased to welcome Rachel Lewis, a well-known blogger in pregnancy loss circles, as the keynote speaker.
Any parent who has lost a child, no matter when it occurred, or if you know someone who has lost a child, is more than welcome to attend as we remember all babies.
