"The cycle of life includes birth, wellness, illness, disability and death. While pregnancy results in anticipated and happy outcomes for most women and their families, for some the unexpected happens. Unexpected events are rarely caused by women or are preventable. Statistically these events occur in ~ 5% of the childbearing population. Yet there is little place in our society where those who have experienced the trauma of loss can have their voices heard and their experiences validated as a normal part of life. This has been a gap in maternity care that I see October 15 project working toward addressing. I wish you and your team the best and appreciate your project. You have my vote."

"I am thrilled to see the work you are doing for this cause. Its encouraging to see and provides hope for the future. I will definately inform people of this when I do work on the maternity unit. I will also notify my social work team."
