Genesis Spiritual Care will host "Open Arms," a remembrance service for families who have experienced a miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death, at 2 p.m. Sunday at Genesis Medical Center West Campus, Pavilion 2 Conference Center, 1401 W. Central Park, Davenport.

Parents, families and friends are invited to the service, which coincides with Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.

The Rev. Dr. Michael Robinson, a chaplain specialist in addiction and grief support, will talk. Families also will have a chance to share their individual stories.

"Many families have experienced the loss of a child due to a miscarriage or stillbirth, or in early infancy," Genesis Chaplain Carol Kelly, said. "Although the loss is far more common than people think, it's often not talked about and families are left to grieve in silence."

For more information or to RSVP, call (563) 421-7970.
