It's a subject many people would rather avoid and if brought up the general population just doesn't know how to respond. I guess that is why I feel the need to talk about it, even if it's here where no one is actually reading. I want people to know ~ I am a Baby Loss Momma! What exactly is a Baby Loss Momma? Well, sadly it's a Mother who had many hopes and dreams for a baby they carried, but were unable to bring home in their arms and fulfill those wishes. You can learn more about my experience by reading Stella's story on Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope.
I'm very lucky to have found Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope as a resource and confirmation that I am not alone in my grief and suffering! Tragically there are way to many women and families who have been directly touched by the loss of baby or infant! Thanks to Faces, other online groups and perinatal loss support groups I have found myself surrounded by a community of Baby Loss Families. We are given a chance to remember our babies, what it felt like to carry them, our deepest desires for their lives, talk about our experiences with complicated pregnancies or births and share our children with each other. Some of us aren't even able to do this with our families or friends because they truly don't understand, but we are able to find comfort in those who had been strangers until we all found ourselves in the same situations. It's a horrible place to be, but I am very thankful I am not here alone!
