“Close to sunset, when the clouds have a golden tinge, A gentle breeze brushes my cheek, or was it your wings? The memory of you forever imprinted in me, You belong in the sky now, forever flying free.”
Miscarriage is a big deal, no matter how far along you are. A baby is a baby, a mother is a mother.
Miscarriage is sad, it hurts us, it leaves a void in our lives, it makes us ask “what if?”.
A mother’s body changes as soon she becomes pregnant. As soon as an egg has been fertilized, your baby starts growing, along with the influx of pregnancy hormones.
When you find out that you are pregnant, you start mentally and physically preparing for having a child in your life. You feel a connection to the small person growing inside of you and your life is about to change.
You start imagining an entire life. Boy or girl? Who will they look like? What will they be like? Where will they sleep? What will we call them? What kind of mother will I be?
You have hundreds of questions going around in your head about pregnancy like “what can’t I eat”, “when is the due date”, “can I still do sport”, “when should I visit my doctor”…an endless stream of questions around early pregnancy and the pregnancy journey.
Then there is no more heartbeat and all of a sudden, baby is gone. The saddest words that no mother or parent is ever ready to hear.
So many women have miscarriages. The statistic is 1 in 4. Yet it widely remains a taboo subject for society. Why is miscarriage so taboo?
There is life after miscarriage, we keep on going, even if our baby has not kept on going. We are still alive and life is still here for living.
