Oct 15 October 15th is International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Day, where bereaved parents from Australia and around the world pause to remember their babies who’ve died. This annual day of remembrance is a significant one on Sands’ calendar, honouring the approximately 106,000 thousand babies who lose their lives to miscarriage, stillbirth and newborn death each year. In 2021 a number of events and activities will be planned to mark the occasion. We warmly invite you to participate. Walks to Remember Sands' Walks to Remember are special annual events around Australia that bring bereaved parents together with their families and friends to commemorate their babies who’ve died, to share their experiences openly and to support each other.In 2021 some of our Walks to Remember may look a little different due to local restrictions related to COVID-19. Our aim, however, is to ensure every bereaved family has an opportunity to participate. That's why, in addition to our traditional face-to-face events we'll also be offering some virtual Walks to Remember in those locations where public gatherings can't take place at the moment. This year we can also support you to put together your own private memorial walk shared with family and friends. To find details of how you can participate in any of our Walk to Remember locations, visit our events page. Victorian Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Service This year, this beautiful and moving annual service, supported by the Victorian Government, is going virtual. The event will be accessible to anyone around Australia who would like to attend. You will be able to register for this event shortly.
