(WFRV) – October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month and while it is an incredibly difficult topic to discuss, it’s also incredibly important and affects far too many families.
Bellin Health Generations Certified Nurse Midwife Molly Hohol and Katie Jurey spoke with Local 5 Live with coping, support options available to those dealing with such a terrible loss.
The Walk to Remember is Saturday, October 16 at 9:30 am at the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary, for information or questions – you can visit their Facebook event page.
