CHIPPEWA FALLS – HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Birth Center and Spiritual Care Services are hosting a walk in honor of babies who have died during pregnancy or shortly after birth. October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
On October 15 at 2 p.m., families who have suffered a loss – either recently or at any time – are encouraged to gather at the Main Pavilion in Irvine Park near the duck pond. The walk will then proceed to the nearby bridge for a brief memorial service and flower ceremony. The walk will continue for a short loop back to the duck pond (less than one mile). All family members and friends offering support are welcome.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. For more information, call HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Birth Center at 715-717-7421.
