Pregnancy Loss Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy Loss Awareness Month. About one in four pregnancies ends in pregnancy loss. For many people this can be an emotional process, and it is important that they receive care in a setting that is comfortable and safe. 

Amy Wright Glenn, the Founder of The Institute for Birth, Breathe and Death has a special, limited time offer for you to expand your knowledge in supporting families around loss. 

“Whether holding space for birth or death, doulas offer compassionate companionship through our most challenging and meaningful transitions. Doulas work in threshold spaces and support individuals as they journey from the known to the unknown, from one stage of life to the next.”

Watch Amy’s special invitation below, available for our amazing community through October 2020.
