Mercy's Walk to Remember

Mercy Perinatal Hospice and Bereavement programs have this annual event dedicated to babies who die each year through miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or newborn death – as a part of the National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in October.  The walk also symbolically joins people nationwide who are working to raise awareness of perinatal grief and ensure sensitive care is given to parents who experience the death of a baby. 

Family, friends and children are welcome to attend. The program includes a children’s activity, a memorial service and a walk on Mercy’s Central Campus to the Memory Garden where the timeless love of our children will be honored at the Angel of Hope statue. A reception will follow for time to share.

This year's event will take place on Sunday, Oct. 8.
