Pregnancy and Infant Loss Month

Our Wish for PAIL Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) Awareness Month, with the 15th being the official day. A day to recognise, acknowledge and honour the estimated one in four pregnancies that end in miscarriage in Australia each year, and approximately 3,000 babies stillborn or die in the first 28 days after birth.

The Sands vision is that all bereaved parents across Queensland have the opportunity to access support services and care they need at the time of the death of their baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, newborn death or medical termination. You can help by joining with us to raise awareness and create conversations. Let other bereaved parents know they are not alone and help them find a place of support.
