Pregnancy And Infant Loss Awareness Month - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Pregnancy And Infant Loss Awareness Month

     Around 90,000 Children die annually before their first birthday. October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. 

    That's why one Wichita Falls woman, Dorothy Brooks, is trying to spread awareness across Texoma. The Always In My Heart Walk event took place Wednesday at Lucy Park. 

    “We decided that we would get together, just to put something on for a small group,” said Brooks. “It turned out to be this big event, we didn't realize that a lot of parents also suffer from infant loss and they wanted to be out here and join us.” 

    The group meets the second Thursday of each month to discuss the topic. There is also a new memory wall that will give grieving parents the opportunity to purchase tiles to put their babies names on.
