Tomorrow (October 15th) is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day. It is with sad memories that I share my experience of having 2 miscarriages. One ectopic and another when I was 4 months along. I felt so alone during the process, but the more I shared my experience the more I realized that others were going through the same tragedy. @welltogetherhealth and @saor_studio are hosting an event tomorrow through zoom to move, share and listen! 💕 xo
Back in April of 2017 I shared what I wrote below on my personal account. ✨ Writing helped me to break the silence.
April 2, 2017: ✨Over 3 weeks ago, I was 4 months pregnant and was devastated to find out our little baby girl inside of me had died. Writing this out brings up so much emotion and heart break. Why did this have to happen to us? Why does this have to happen to anyone? And as I read recently somewhere "Life is so much bigger and we are definitely so much deeper and so much more than we may choose to share in these little squares. We all have our own battles and our own joys that make us who we are." It's so nice to share our celebrations and our happy moments...but sometimes it's ok to share our struggles...that perhaps there is someone else out there going through the same thing that needs to know they aren't alone in this journey. I've learned over the years that only time can heal a broken heart and one day I will look back and say "I survived this". So for now I will surround myself with the people I love, cry when I need to and hold on tight to my already perfect family - Tanner and my little angel Hudson. .
And of course try again for another miracle. 🙏🏻💕
