It is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. Tonight we will light a candle for our three Angel Babies and we will remember them. Jonah. Daisy. Amal. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about them or where I “should be” in the pregnancy I most recently lost. I would have found out the gender by now. I should be wearing maternity clothes. We would have started shopping for things and painting the room. All dreams and wishes and nothing more.
I hope that one day the stigma of talking about miscarriage will be gone. I hope one day couples won’t chose to go through the pain alone and isolated in their misery. I hope that one day we can support each other better.
Let’s start to open up the dialogue like clinical psychologist Jessica Zucker has with her Honest Miscarriage Cards.
