October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. More specifically recognized on October 15.
This is a subject I know all too well, unfortunately.
My husband and I have 5 angel babies, 4 miscarriages and one stillborn son.
Loss is a odd thing.
People will say all kinds of things that are supposed to be comforting, but most we’re more hurtful than anything.
Like the time I was asked if I was attending a baby shower for a friend of my husbands less than a month after we had loss our son Nicolas who was stillborn.
I am aware most just don’t know, what to say or are just unconscious of the things that may come out of their mouth at this time.
I still grieve for the babies we lost.
Although our first loss was almost 10 years ago and our most recent was a little of 2 years ago, everything seems so fresh.
Healing is different for everyone.
Earlier this Summer, I started writing a memoir about my journey to motherhood which has been a very interesting one.
I believe the more we share our stories, the more we may be able to help one another.
Until next time,
