Honoring babies lost to miscarriage, stillbirth and sudden infant death

Noah's Walk 2019

This year marks the 10th Annual Noah's Walk for Remembrance and hope. This family-friendly walk through the downtowns of Biddeford and Saco has the purposes of increasing awareness about pregnancy and infant loss, raising funds for First Candle, and giving people who have experienced loss a place and a way to honor and remember their babies. Noah's Walk 2019 will take place on Saturday, October 19. Click here for all of the details. 


October 15 is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, and at 7 p.m. in each time zone, people across the world light candles to remember babies lost to miscarriage, stillbirth and sudden infant death. Maine Medical Center is hosting a candlelight vigil on the evening of October 15 to provide space for people to gather to remember babies, share stories, and participate in the International Wave of Light together.Click here for all of the details about the 2019 vigil.
