Did you know that every year in Ontario, 37,000 would-be moms suffer the unimaginable pain of losing their baby at some point during pregnancy? In addition to feeling overwhelming grief, these families face a health-care system that lacks the expertise and training to get them the support they need to start healing after their traumatic loss.
These heartbroken moms and dads are your employees, co-workers, family, friends and neighbours and they desperately need your help.
However, there is hope. Thanks to Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) Network, the one in three Ontario women who will lose a baby during pregnancy in her lifetime now have somewhere to turn.
With your support, you can help families in our community who have lost an infant access services through the PAIL Network closer to home.
We hope that you will come out and support the event by walking or running yourself or with your family and friends.
