October 15: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day candle-lighting ceremonies

October 15 is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. Across the world, this day is marked with the International Wave of Light, where candles are lit at 7 p.m. to honour the short lives of babies lost in every country.  Small gatherings are held in communities across the province to remember and honour those lives lost, together.
