WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WI (OnFocus) – October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Each October, memorial services are held to remember the babies who die each year through pregnancy loss, stillbirth and newborn death. Attended by parents, families, friends, and health care professionals across the United States, these memorials symbolically unite those who have experienced a loss and those who care for them.
This year, our area’s In Our Hearts Forever Memorial Service will be Saturday, October 15, beginning at 10 a.m. in the mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery & Mausoleum, 631 Spring Street, Wisconsin Rapids.
There will be a brief service to honor all our babies, followed by a visit to the Aspirus Riverview Hospital memorial site at the cemetery. Flowers and mementos are welcome at the memorial site.
The In Our Hearts Forever Memorial Service provides an opportunity for those who have experienced a loss to heal and bond with others. Anyone who has experienced a pregnancy or infant loss is invited to attend, regardless of when your loss occurred. Family members, friends, and children are also welcome. No registration is needed.
