Toronto – Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015 - Today, I introduced a Private Member’s Bill, Bill 141- Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness, Research, and Care Act, 2015. If passed, this bill would require the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to:

  • Establish and expand comprehensive research initiatives and programs to assist mothers and families who experience pregnancy loss or infant death
  • Undertake a comprehensive comparative analysis to understand the factors that contribute to an increased risk of pregnancy loss or infant death
  • Develop and expand programs to help reduce the risk of pregnancy loss or infant death
  • Develop and expand existing programs across Ontario to provide counselling and support to mothers and families who have experienced pregnancy loss or infant death
  • Undertake a comprehensive analysis and survey of the best practices in other jurisdiction in regards to prevention of pregnancy loss or infant death

“Every year thousands of Ontario mothers and their families experience pregnancy and infant loss. This Bill, if passed, would bring much needed attention and support for those who suffer in silence.”

-  MPP Mike Colle, Eglinton-Lawrence
