October—Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month

Through the Congenital Heart Public Health Consortium (CHPHC) we celebrate that most infants born with a CHD will live to be adults. At the same time, congenital heart defects (CHDs) remain a leading cause of birth defect-associated infant illness and death. CHPHC member organizations including Mended Little Hearts, March of Dimes and the Pediatric Congenital Heart Association offer supports to parents and families who have lost a pregnancy or their baby to CHD. CHPHC members can follow the conversation about pregnancy and infant loss on Twitter at #PregnancyAndInfantLossAwarenessMonth.
