Poems About Pregnancy And Infant Loss

Pregnancy And Infant Loss Awareness Month

Pregnancy And Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. This awareness month was first declared on October 15, 1988, by President Ronald Reagan. It's a month to remember the babies we never got to hold in our arms or the babies that left this earth too soon. The pain can be unbearable for parents who experience this void in their lives.

Loss due to miscarriages, stillbirths, SIDS, and other infant deaths are not always talked about. Many people who suffer miscarriages don't share the news openly, causing them to wrestle with the pain without others knowing. Share your story. The darkness you walked through can shine a light for someone else going through the same thing.

We hope that you will see that you are not alone by reading these poems on pregnancy and infant loss. We encourage you to do something to keep the memory of your baby alive. Even if you never held your baby in your arms, their short life had meaning, and they will always be a part of your family.

Poems Raising Awareness About Suicide
  • Published: August 30, 2021

Suicide Prevention Month

Suicide Prevention Month

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. It's a month dedicated to raising awareness about suicide and sharing hope for those affected by it. It's a month to help destigmatize this widespread and heartbreaking topic.

Often, people don't want their lives to end; they just wish the pain they're experiencing in life would end. Life can become overwhelming for people of all ages. Unfortunately, according to the National Alliance on Mental Health, suicide is the second leading cause of death of people ages 10-34. 

Suicide has a far-reaching effect. When someone chooses to end his or her life, the people connected to that person are left to grieve. Many times, they also live with guilt and have questions that will never be answered. 

We hope that by shedding light on this topic through poetry, people can see that they're not alone. May we come together and help those who are hurting -- both the people experiencing suicidal thoughts and those who have lost loved ones to suicide. 

Many people have felt hopeless at some point. You are not alone. This is not a battle you have to fight by yourself. Let’s encourage one another.

If you are hurting, please reach out to someone. If you feel like you are drowning with everything happening around you and you wonder how you will go on, there are people who want to help. If you have been thinking about ending your life, we urge you to reach out. In the United States, you can contact the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. There is hope!
