Facts/Stats on Pregnancy & Infant Loss

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This section is a network of fact and statistic listings.  Please utilize our “types of loss” section for a much more comprehensive support. 

While searching for reasons for infant death may be part of your healing journey, it is not the entire journey and cannot prevent or undo the journey.  Please, we ask you most deeply, that if you seek answers, to have support with you as you do.  We do hope that if you are considering getting pregnant again, that infant death can be prevented.  But we cannot guarantee or endorse any one method for that to happen.  Finding inconclusive tests or finding medical reasons can bring you to a fresh level of grief, one that requires support.
