A missed miscarriage
A missed miscarriage… as I write those words they ring out.

It’s so hard to write but I feel it’s important I put the words out there.
We learned that three days after I’d had the scan at Care my baby died. Just over 8 weeks.
So 4 weeks after the first scan  and until the 12 week scan I was carrying something which was no longer living and we were blissfully unaware.

That’s pretty tough to write.

The smile on my husbands face, his happiness, the excitement we both felt. The idea that my husband would be a father and I a mum, the joking over baby names. The one name we found we liked. The planning over the baby’s room – how could I not think about this after the first scan. The talk with the midwife, the doctor, the future that was ahead which…

RoJo and Evie: a Preemie NICU Journey

After suffering from a miscarriage I was made painfully aware of how ignorant the average Joe is to pregnancy loss. From brutally worded responses telling us to “just try again,” to being told that I “wasn’t that pregnant,” to having our loss completely ignored, an overwhelming amount of our friends and peers had less than positive responses to our miscarriage. It quickly came to our attention that people simply did not know what to say to or do for us in our time of need. While this shocked me, I believe it is the result of decade after decade of our society percieving pregnancy loss as a thing of shame. Something best kept hidden away and never spoken of again by the woman or her partner.

When preparing this particular post I did a bit of admittedly limited research. I reached out the women in my…

Sorry Not Sorry.

In continued acknowledgement of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month, I am sharing this mother’s story on grieving after loss. I can identify so much with every word she has written here, check it out!

Erin Haligowski

The past week has been hard.I have cried. A lot. This is the reality of child loss, and of grief, and of trying to find a new normal during a season of life where nothing–nothing–feels normal anymore. Because life isn’t how it should be.

There is no fixing this. Losing Alexander will not ever be okay. A lot of people’s lives have started to go back to “normal,” but ours hasn’t. And it won’t.But, a really wise doctor told us to keep taking forward steps.

Here’s the truth: forward steps are hard. They’re not impossible, but they’re damn hard and take a lot of work. And they often involve tears. Thisbroken heart of mine is the heaviest thing I’ve ever had to carry.

But I’m committed to the journey. I’m committed to taking forward steps, and to learning to carry this grief and this loss. I’m committed…

Sharing this beautiful story on still birth and pregnancy & infant loss awareness.

The Face of a Mother

My fiancé and I picked our wedding date in July of 2015. We both love the fall so we chose October 15, 2016. I loved the way the numbers sounded together (I’m a numbers and dates person) We found out we were pregnant with our first child on November 12, 2015. We were so excited to be having our first child, we had been trying for so long! We thought about our wedding and I as a mother (a very protective one) knew that I didn’t want to take away from her early months of life outside the womb to plan a wedding. I felt it wouldn’t be fair to her; I just wanted to focus on her. So we changed the wedding to October 7, 2017. We had our scheduled induction on June 29, 2016. When we arrived at the hospital, our world was shattered when we found out…
