One in Two Won’t

.

One in two American babies

won’t reach two months old.

Blue and Pink is the ribbon for Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness, as well as the NICU ribbon.

Blue and pink together also make purple, which is an appropriate color for babies who die early in pregnancy, when their gender isn’t known, because blue can represent dad, and pink can represent mom.

These purple beads represent babies who do not live to two months old, after birth.

If you are a parent whose child is older than one month old, if your child is “in the clear

please, just take a look around you.

A purple bead is touching yours.

A parent around you has experienced loss

even if you don’t know it.

Tell everyone you know about stillbirthday. 

We provide support prior to, during and after loss.

Here are two helpful links if you have not experienced loss: our Farewell Celebrations, and our information for Loved Ones.
