Eid Al-Fitr 2020 Message

 

We would like to express our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all those who have contributed, by donating their time, money or effort, towards raising awareness of child loss and supporting bereaved parents.

For some, Eid is actually...

The hospital bag is packed, everything ticked off on the list.

The nursery paint has dried, the cot mobile hangs in anticipation of the little one it will entertain.

The first outfit for those all-important hospital snaps has been selected and placed at the top of the baby’s bag.

And then you wait.

Those last few weeks drag on for an eternity.

As your movements get more laboured with the ever-increasing weight of the child you carry, well-meaning friends and family drop you text...

The Promise of Allah

 

I tear up as I lie in bed nursing my almost two-year-old little girl.

Her warm hands stroking my tummy while my arms blanket her as she drifts off to sleep.

I knew that weaning her would be difficult for me, and now, I find myself turning to Allah, asking Him for the strength to get us both through this weaning process.

I imagine that many mothers feel this way about weaning.

Many of them have told me that when the time comes, they just knew that it was time.

That they got to a point...

Some Days Are Tougher Than Others

 

When I come across someone going through their own hardship, be it bereavement, illness, struggles in a relationship, or financial loss, I often say to them, 

“life is not meant to be easy, so don’t be too harsh on yourself if you are struggling to cope”.

Monday, January 14th 2008, 8.30am, marked a moment that changed my life forever; my second pregnancy resulted in my baby girl being stillborn.

I can remember every single second of that day.

“So, You Don’t Have Any Children…?”

 

Sometimes one of the hardest things to deal with as part of your grieving process can be uncomfortable or insensitive questions.

No matter how well meaning, when you are trying to cope with the loss of a child, questions from outsiders can cut deep.

Some people ask very personal, unnecessarily nosy questions, such as: 

“Why don’t you have any children?”

Questions like this can sour the conversation, make the situation tense and even sting you when they take you...
