Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Week
Normally, our focus is placed on both the pre-natal and post-natal care of newborns and their mothers, but what about those mothers that lost their child? No one really pays attention to or speaks about Pregnancy and Infant Loss because it is a touchy topic. However, the Sigma Chi Chapter found a unique way to bring awareness to it. Our chapter celebrated Pregnancy and Infant Loss Week which consisted of a series of events.
The college community gathered and decorated the side walk with “Angel Art".
Break the Silence
A forum focused on bringing awareness to pregnancy and infant loss and ways it can be avoided. A young couple came in and gave a testimony on their long journey to having a child.
Wave of Light
Candles were lit in honor of all babies who passed away.
This is a great event chapters can execute under our women's wellness initiative. It also brings awareness to an issue we no one discusses.
