October is SIDS, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Each day, 13 babies are lost to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other unexpected infant deaths. Additionally, more than 70 new parents will receive the news that their baby is stillborn while countless others will lose a child to miscarriage, according to First Candle, an organization geared toward supporting families who have experienced a loss due to SIDS, and promoting SIDS awareness and prevention.
