Infant Loss

In (God's) hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind. - Job 12:10

Saint Paulinus of Nola, Pray for us.

Infant loss: The death of a baby within the first year of life.

Neonatal period: Birth to 28 completed days of life. 


Preterm Birth is one of the leading causes of infant loss. 

Other common causes include low birthweight, birth defects, pregnancy complications, injuries, and SIDS. Research is still attempting to find answers to the cause of SIDS.

Support groups and Catholic counseling/grief counseling with a trusted professional may be beneficial in assisting the grief journey.
