Spread the word about Pregnancy and Infant Loss resources in Ottawa and Gatineau
For many women, the excitement over a positive pregnancy test doesn’t lead to that picture perfect moment of mom and baby cuddling and, in fact, an estimated one in four women will experience miscarriage or pregnancy loss in her lifetime.
“Most people know someone who has lost a baby, but they never hear that story until they have a miscarriage or a stillbirth themselves. So when it happens to you, you are completely unprepared for the possibility,” says bereaved parent Margaret Sambol. “I felt alone and I had no idea where to even look for resources or support.”
