October is Pregnancy & Infant loss awareness month. Honoring our babies gone too soon due to stillbirth, SIDS, embryo loss, chemical pregnancy, ectopic & molar pregnancy, infant loss and miscarriage. 1 in 4 women have suffered a loss.
I am 1 in 4. My daughter, born sleeping (M.H.W. 04-14-2008)
Say their name. Acknowledge their existence. Light a candle. Be gentle with yourself and know that it is not your fault.
Our rainbow 1 in 4 candles are lightly scented in soft clean cotton with a burn time of appx 50hrs.
To raise awareness and show support to families that have experienced such a loss, I have partnered up with Comfort Kit Fundraisers, an Ontario based and female run organization. Proceeds from every rainbow candle purchased will go directly to Comfort Kits.
Going through pregnancy and infant loss is one of the most devastating things that families can experience. Leaving the hospital without your precious baby is absolutely heartbreaking. Loss can be a very lonely place and there are often a lack of supports available for families.
At Comfort Kit Fundraiser we raise funds to create comfort kits which are given to families following the tragic loss of their baby. These kits include many special items which are meant to provide comfort and support to parents in the days, weeks, months and years following their loss.We want families to know that they are supported and not alone.
Kits are donated to Trillium Health Partners Credit Valley Hospital and are given out at the perinatal bereavement unit to families who have sadly lost their baby. Kits are also given to any families who reach out to us via our website at www.comfortkitfundraiser.com
