Coping with Grief Teleconference During Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month Helps Two Million American Women Who Suffer Each Year
October 23, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsLesley Vance, author of Infertility Journeys: Finding Your Happy Ending, will host a "Coping with Grief" teleconference during Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (http://lesleyvance.com/events).
Former President Ronald Reagan adopted Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Month in 1988 to recognize the need for community education and awareness regarding miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death. Each year in the United States, more than two million women are faced with the tragedy of pregnancy and infant loss, according to the American Pregnancy Association.
"Whether it's you or someone you know, we've all been touched by the tragedy of pregnancy and infant loss. Knowing what to say and how to help your family member or friend can make a big difference in his or her grieving process," said Lesley Vance, teleconference host and author of Infertility Journeys: Finding Your Happy Ending. "About one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, and SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) is the leading cause of death in babies in the United States. Any loss of a child can leave parents, family and friends devastated," Vance added.
