NDP MP Introduces Bill to Recognize Perinatal Bereavement Day

MP Christine Moore from Abitibi—Témiscamingue introduced Bill C-700, An Act to Establish National Perinatal Bereavement Awareness Day, which would be October 15th.

Ms. Moore is the NDP Health Critic.

Of perinatal loss, she said:

This kind of loss is considered one of the hardest things anyone could ever go through in their adult life, and it can cause physical and psychological suffering for the parents and the extended family. These parents often isolate themselves, since it is such a difficult experience to go through.

Why don't you tweet her and thank her for presenting this Bill?
