Miscarriage

When i imagine what happens at the time of conception of a baby i am in awe at what a miracle of nature we are experiencing. And yet nature doesn't always work. When nature's plan fails, when development is interrupted and we experience the loss of our baby the term miscarriage can feel overwhelmingly inadequate.

People without personal experience of miscarriage may have difficulty understanding that it can be experienced as a great loss, especially if it happens at a very early stage. But as we know, bonding with a child happens long before their existence is detectable to the outside world.

The Chinese say that a child is a year old at birth.

Most of the time the reaction to our loss is more intense than is generally recognised, and even more intense than we allow ourselves to acknowledge. Grief can get repressed, our society doesn't make it easy to express our grief in a healthy way.

But, there is an amazing community of baby loss parents out there, who understand and are sharing their journey through grief towards healing. Please do not feel alone.

There is no foot so small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world”

 

“Some say you are too painful to remember, I say you are too precious to forget!”

 “They gave so much to be so little, but Angels always do.”

“Each new life, no matter how brief, forever changes the world.”

“I held you every second of your life.” – Stephanie Paige Cole

“No one can know how much I love you, because you are the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.”

“If every tear we shed for you became a star above, you’d stroll in Angel’s garden, lit by everlasting love.”

“If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.”

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.” – Dr. Seuss

“It has been said time heals all wounds, I do not agree.  The wounds remain.  In time, the mind protecting it’s sanity covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it’s never gone.” – Rose Kennedy

“Breathe.  Listen for my footfall in your heart.  I am not gone but merely walk within you.” – Nicholas Evans

“If I had lost a leg, I would tell them, instead of a boy, no one would ever ask me if I was ‘over it’.  They would ask me how I was doing learning to walk without my leg.  I was learning to walk and to breathe and to live without Wade.  And what I was learning is that it was never going to be the life I had before.” – Elizabeth Edwards

“It’s a happy life, but someone is missing.  It’s a happy life, and someone is missing.” – Elizabeth McCracken
