Future Pregnancies

Woman in White

For many, a future pregnancy can be a very confusing and anxious time, a roller coaster of emotions.
 

One minute you are excited about your pregnancy, the next you grieve for the baby you have lost.

You reach certain milestones that bring back memories of 'last time'.

You worry about each check up, hoping that everything will be okay.


It may be difficult for some people to understand or know what to say or do. 

Others can appear to have completely forgotten about your loss, focusing on your new arrival.

Be gentle on yourself, and don't be scared to say how you feel to your partner, family and friends.

Our two sons have grown up knowing they have a sister, she is part of our family, it is our 'normal', like many other parents I have got to know over the years.

One thing is for sure, we can never go backwards, but we can look to the future.  The baby you have lost will always be a part of you, whether you go on to have more children or not.

 

Remember, you will never replace the baby you have lost, neither will you ever forget them, but the pain will become easier.

You may have had to say goodbye to your baby, but they will always hold a special place in your heart.
