In 1989, for the first time in history thousands of people walked together in the middle of Washington DC, holding onto the edges of some 500 baby blankets. Each blanket had the names of those souls who left this world too early, either as a newborn or when still in its mother’s womb. The grief of close relatives and especially that of the parents at a miscarriage, still birth or death of a newborn is just as much, if not more, as one would experience over the loss of an older child.
Every Year on October 15th, the world unites to offer condolences to the young lives lost and to offer support to the close relatives who have had to face such heart-breaking circumstances.
Though there is much fanfare around pregnancy and the correct measures to be undertaken to keep both mother and child healthy and happy, not many discuss the events leading up to a miscarriage or infant loss. To add to the already overwhelming feeling of guilt being experienced by the parents (and especially the mother) there is a certain social stigma attached to the situation on the whole.
“It was a lonely experience…heart-breaking…,” said Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the popular networking site Facebook, remembering how he and his wife had struggled to deal with multiple miscarriages before they were finally blessed with a beautiful and healthy baby.
