Pregnancy & Infant Loss Walk Planned for October 7th

Atlantic, IA – The Cass County Memorial Hospital Obstetrics (OB) Department will be hosting a walk to support families suffering from pregnancy loss and infant loss. The walk is titled, “Love Steps Up” and will be held on Saturday, October 7th.

“As OB nurses, we work directly with patients who suffer miscarriages and still births,” said Kate Nachtman, RN. “But we’re also moms who have experienced losses, too, and we know how critical it is to feel supported and loved when you are grieving the loss of a baby.”

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held on Saturday, October 7th at 10 am at the Atlantic High School. Participants will gather and then walk on the track together. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the AHS gymnasium.

“We encourage anyone to attend who has been impacted by a loss,” said Kate. “Our goals are to create awareness and to also strengthen our community by showing our support to these families.”

There is no registration or fee for the event, but any questions can be directed to the CCMH OB Department at 712-250-8862.
