Remembering the Lost

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day and I want to respect that here, knowing so many people who’ve suffered the hardship and pain and indescribable nature of losing a child, however far into gestation, not least my precious Godson’s siblings.

From my Instagram:


I don’t pretend to have any knowledge beyond the facts about pregnancy loss, but I know so many people who’ve gone through it and more than once, not to mention that the majority of hospital letters concerning pregnancy that I work with are ‘haemorrhage in early pregnancy’. About 50% of pregnancies end before the baby is born and we are surrounded by the silent killer that is biology.

I can’t begin to imagine the pain, no, but the mysteries of pregnancy and the sanctity of life have always been a core tenet of who I am and I grieve in my own way.
