I am today sharing a little note from a couple that are very close to us, they do wish to remain annonymous as they are private people. Please respect that in your comments.
We wanted to raise awareness on the sad side when pregnancy doesn’t quite go how as planned when you see two lines on the test.
We debated posting this on social media however felt it was still a bit too personal and private to broadcast to EVERYONE.
Nonetheless we still want to raise awareness and bridge a gap between this silent grief so many have to endure. I didn’t want to share on social media, however I am happy for you to share my email with whoever you feel would either seek some form of comfort from it, or to raise awareness.
Please read the below….
Not one to post much about myself or anything for that matter I really debated whether or not I should even post this at all. But truth is I know that I am not alone in my grief and many women and men have been/are going through this heartache too.
Today would have been the day our baby was due to come into this world. March the 19th was meant to be the happiest day of our lives, but unfortunately it is now filled with grief, sadness and emptiness.
Finding out back in August that our much loved and longed for tiny human no longer had a heartbeat was the most painful experience I have ever had to go through. To be on cloud 9 just hours before, to feeling like someone had just ripped out my heart was such a strange experience and not one I would wish upon anybody.
Truth of the matter is sadly I know I am not alone. In fact I am one in every 4 women who have to endure the grief of miscarriage – and the reason I am posting is because of this. So many women (and their partners) suffer in silence and I hated that I couldn’t tell people what I was going through. Miscarriage shouldn’t be something couples have to do alone and quietly, it should be something that we can talk openly about and I want to start by sharing my voice.
Whether I will ever get the privilege to become pregnant again I don’t know, but for that too short a time I had, I loved every second being a mum.
See you in heaven little angel, you were too good for this world. We will never stop loving you.
Now in my job I only get to see the happy outcome, but I know so many of my clients have been here – more than you would think. What I want to say is; just because not now, does not mean not ever. There is so much hope and so much support. Please don’t ever sit in silence – I am here for anybody that needs it and my door is always open. Support can also be sought from Tommy’s, one of my favourite charities. https://www.tommys.org/
I want to end this post on a positive with some beautiful rainbow babies that my clients have given the ok to share. Let these little faces shine a light.
