About the event

Infant Loss Awareness Wave of Light is a significant event and symbolizes a critical aspect of compassionate support and remembrance for families who have experienced the loss of an infant, whether through miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, or any other tragic circumstance. Here's why it is important:

  1. Honoring and Remembering: The Wave of Light provides a dedicated moment for families and individuals to honor and remember the babies who were taken too soon. Grieving parents often find solace in openly acknowledging and commemorating their child's existence, even if it was brief.
  2. Raising Awareness: Infant loss is a deeply personal and often stigmatized topic. The Wave of Light helps raise awareness about the prevalence of infant loss, letting people know they are not alone and encouraging more open conversations about grief and loss.
  3. Supporting Grieving Families: It's a powerful symbol of support for grieving families. The act of lighting a candle or participating in the event, even virtually, shows solidarity and empathy for those who have suffered the loss of an infant.
  4. Reducing Stigma: By participating in the Wave of Light, we challenge the stigma surrounding infant loss. It sends a message that this type of grief is valid and should not be hidden or minimized.
  5. Promoting Healing: The act of coming together for a common purpose and sharing in a collective moment of remembrance can be incredibly healing. It offers a sense of community and comfort during a time of profound sadness.
  6. Advocacy and Support: It can also be a platform for advocacy, pushing for better support systems for families dealing with infant loss, improved medical care during pregnancy and childbirth, and more research to understand and prevent such losses.
  7. Breaking the Silence: Infant loss can be isolating, as many people are uncomfortable talking about it. The Wave of Light encourages individuals to break the silence, share their stories, and seek the emotional support they need.
  8. Ritual and Tradition: For many families, participating in the Wave of Light becomes a meaningful annual tradition. It provides an opportunity to keep the memory of their child alive and find comfort in the ritual.
  9. Global Solidarity: The Wave of Light is observed globally, creating a sense of worldwide solidarity among grieving parents and their loved ones. It reinforces the idea that infant loss is a universal experience, transcending cultural boundaries.

In summary, the Infant Loss Awareness Wave of Light is a poignant and meaningful event that serves as a beacon of hope, support, and remembrance for those who have suffered the loss of an infant. It helps break the silence around this sensitive topic, promotes healing, and advocates for better care and understanding of infant loss.
