Its national pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. Not a day goes by I don’t think to myself how different things could’ve been. That I don’t feel a little short changed by nature. It’s an odd emptiness you can’t really explain until you find yourself in that position. Until you find yourself doubled over in pain hand delivering the life that was once inside you, it’s hard to see through that lens. The reality of it is that 1 in 4 of us will be in that position. If you find yourself there, reach out and know you’re not alone! Your pain is real and your baby mattered! If you have been blessed enough to avoid that position- show compassion and kindness to those who have. Never under score the pain and grief one may be experiencing.
