Pregnancy loss and child loss is such a unspoken and hidden conversation. We really don't understand why, when it happens to so many people from so many different cultures, ethnic backgrounds, and so close to you. You may have not experienced this but your mom, aunt, sister, grandma, cousin, or close friend has, because the statistic rates are so high. Did you know there are over 3 Million cases per year and 58% of which happens to women under the age of 35? Some people really don’t understand how detrimental losing a baby is from a miscarriage, still birth , or infant loss. It affects you mentally , physically, & emotionally all at once. We have to put a stop to this by breaking the silence and having the miscarriage, still birth, and infant loss conversation. But more importantly sharing our stories with one another. There is so much healing from being able to talk about it without being judged or looked at as defective. To all the women and men out there who loss a baby to any circumstance, regardless of the cause, Remember The Babies SEES YOU & SUPPORTS YOU from one MOTHER & FATHER who experienced this grief to another.
"January 2010, a day I rarely talk about, it’s just hard. But to my first child that I NEVER MET, made it to heaven. Continue to rest in heaven and watch over me, your father, and your siblings we LOVE YOU and we will see you again."
My name is Sara and this is our story my first Pregnancy was in 2014 around summer I discovered I was pregnant but I was having what the doctors called a Threatened miscarriage I was 9 weeks along when I lost the baby I got pregnant again a year later and had a son who is 4 years old now in 2018 I became pregnant again the day we were going to find out what we were having the doctor said we were having a girl but then she gave us devastating news she said our baby had many complications in her brain that she wasn't compatible with life It broke my heart and I cried all the way home despite what she said I didn't want to loose hope because doctors make mistakes all the time when we went back for another checkup the doctors diagnosed her with Holoprocencephaly they said the same thing that babies that had this do not survive they asked me if I wanted to continue my pregnancy or terminate and I couldn't bare that thought but every doctor appointment after the news got worse and worse. She had abnormalities in her brain,face,spin and there was a hole in her heart that last doctors visit I was exactly 6 months along I had to make the hardest decision of my life I decided to terminate the pregnancy because her heart beat had started to slow down I knew at that moment I would not make it to my due date it tore me apart the doctor's induced my labour and I was there for two days I had her naturally at 5:32 in the morning on September 19th 2018 the nurses cleaned her up and brought her to me in a lil pink blanket and a lil pink beanie and I got to hold her we named her Rebecca Grace and she was the tiniest most beautiful lil Angel there is saying goodbye to her was the hardest thing I ever had to do no mother wants to leave a hospital with empty arms I still had to come home and explain to my son who was two at the time that there was no more baby in mommy's tummy that was hard to do we decided to bury her she had a beautiful funeral and is surrounded by all the other Angel babies gone to soon 10 days after we buried our daughter we attended the Wave of Light at our church Shepherd of the hills it was there that I met many other people who knew my pain that same night I signed up for a support group called In Loving Arms a group where we would get together once a week and share our story's and talk about our babies or what could have been I've became very good friends with these people and I've been able to help others cope with their losses as well as my own it has helped me on my healing journey and I've been able to find many resources on spreading awareness I am the 1 in 4 I am the Mother of Angel's
