Am I still a “Mom” if my baby dies?
Question often asked by mothers after going through the loss of a pregnancy or infant death. RGA affirms that even though these moms did not get to keep their baby here on this earth, no one can take away the title that they deserve. Rock Goodbye Angel celebrates these moms by offering an annual Mother’s Day event to honor them in a very special way.
Am I still a “Dad” if my baby dies?
A father’s loss is very real and even though a father’s grief can sometimes be different from the mother’s, the pain of the loss of a baby is just as deep. RGA affirms that even though these dads did not get to keep their baby on this earth, they are still fathers. RGA celebrates these dads by offering an annual Father’s Day event to honor them in a very special way.
On October 1988, President Ronald Reagan Proclaimed October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. "When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn't a word to describe them. This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. It is also meant to inform and provide resources for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes."
Rock Goodbye Angel holds an Annual Candle Light Remembrance Event honoring families of Pregnancy and Infant Loss.
