Pregnancy & Infant Loss Walk Planned for October 13thSeptember 25, 2018
For Immediate Release
Atlantic, IA – The Cass County Memorial Hospital Obstetrics (OB) Department announces the “Love Steps Up” walk will be held on Saturday, October 13th at 10 am at the Atlantic High School track.
Love Steps Up is an initiative created by the OB Department to raise awareness and support for families impacted by pregnancy and infant loss. The annual walk is held in October.
“Most people don’t talk about miscarriage openly, but it has affected a large number of families,” said Britni Olson, RN. “We started Love Steps Up as a community event so that there would be more open discussion about it. We hope that parents affected by miscarriage know that they aren’t alone, and that the community is here to support them. When you suffer a miscarriage or infant loss, it’s a very personal experience, but it can also be very healing to connect with others who have been through similar experiences.”
The event is free and open to the public. It will be held on Saturday, October 13th at 10 am at the Atlantic High School. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the AHS gymnasium.
There is no registration or fee for the event, but you can order a Love Steps Up t-shirt at www.casshealth.org through October 5th. Any questions can be directed to the CCMH OB Department at 712-250-8862.
