Helpful/Hurtful: Families Talk About Pregnancy and Infant Loss
Each year in Ontario, approximately 38,000 visits to emergency departments are recorded related to early pregnancy losses and their associated complications. Approximately 1300 babies are stillborn and 600 babies die within their first year of life. That’s one baby, one family, every 5 hours.
