My deepest condolences go out to you for your devastating loss.
When my nephew died, my family was in absolute turmoil.
And I suspected that there were many other families out there consumed in their grief and with no-one to help them.
But I just didn’t know how to go about tackling this issue and provide them with the support and relief that they so desperately needed.
Society, and everyone around me, always said that grief was something personal, that people would get over their grief in time and it was better to leave bereaved parents alone.
And in terms of stillbirth - there were also so many different opinions and judgements about stillbirth – on how to talk about it, how not to talk about it and what it means for you, the parent.
Yes of course there is a huge amount of sympathy but beyond that, not much more – because it isn’t something that we speak about openly, we leave parents who have had a baby stillborn alone and we don’t encourage them to talk.
Did you know that 3500 babies are stillborn each year in the UK?
Sadly, you are not alone and stillbirth is far too common.
A stillbirth is so shocking, so devastating.
The desperation, the despondency and the deep heart-wrenching sorrow are a grief like no other.
We know this, we understand and this is why we want to help you to understand what has happened and how you can learn to find life again after your tragic loss.
The information I am going to share with you can change your life. It can give you a life again after the stillbirth of your much longed for baby – a life that doesn’t forget them but a life that honours their soul.
Gathering your strength, carrying on, it may seem so difficult, it may feel like you can’t do it and there is no point anymore.
But this is something you owe to yourself and your child.
Because your child is still your child and they need you to remember them but also to live your life for them.
And for every moment that goes past without the right support in place for you, without someone to talk to who truly understands not just your faith but your experience - is a moment too long in pain.
If that seems too much to bear, then think of this: the pain of missing your child that you are feeling, what if it doesn’t go away?
What if it doesn’t ever ease up?
And it continues to bubble away inside, taking all your strength and spirit.
Could you handle that? Could you bear it?
Constant pain, every present but always taking you by surprise with its power.
Even though it may seem hard now, if you don’t take action, if you don’t allow us to help you, the grief controlling your life right now will always have a hold on you.
