Office of Life, Justice and Peace invites you to a webinar via Zoom titled: Understanding Pregnancy Loss: What To Do and What Not To Do on February 9.
In a society that has been isolated due to the pandemic and political turmoil, there is a quiet grief that can go even more unnoticed: that of a pregnancy loss.
- One in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage, while one in 100 pregnancies ends in stillbirth.
- One in six couples will experience problems with infertility.
- In addition, there are over one million elective abortions performed each year.
Many don’t know where to turn for support and their grief becomes disenfranchised. Learn to understand the impact of pregnancy losses and how to begin to offer support to those who are struggling.
Speaker Sharon St. Pierre, LCSW is a Merciful Companion coordinator at By Your Side LA, a pregnancy loss outreach program through the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Office of Life, Justice and Peace.
