Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology reminds everyone that this Thursday, October 15, is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. This year will mark the fourteenth observance of this day.

October was designated National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan. During this month, we recognize the struggles of parents who have lost a child due to:

  • Miscarriage
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Molar pregnancy
  • Stillbirths
  • Birth defects
  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

As many as one in four pregnancies in the United States end in miscarriage, and for many women, this devastating loss can become a recurring pattern. In their grief, those who have suffered multiple losses may feel as though they must give up their dream of having children and raising a family. If you know someone who has suffered the loss of a pregnancy or infant child, we invite you to join the network of supporters throughout the country in solidarity by lighting a candle on October 15th at 7:00 p.m.

While we take time to remember the children who have been lost, it is encouraging to also recognize how far doctors have come in treating all forms of pregnancy loss. Through the use of IVF, IUI, and immunology treatments, patients who have suffered infertility or multiple miscarriages now have a better chance of a successful, healthy pregnancy than ever before. The team at Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology will continue to dedicate all of our resources to further the field of reproductive immunology in the coming years.

If you or someone you know is struggling with infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss, we may be able to help. Please contact Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology at (516) 584-8710. We are available to discuss your options during a free consultation.
