time flies when you're being a mum

Time for Mum tagged with 'baby loss'

if you’re anything like me, you find it difficult to even find time to have a wash, there’s always something more pressing. Here I’m hoping to encourage myself and you to put yourself first a bit more!

15 Oct, 2014

My heart has broken so many times this week since I shared Claire from Joy and Pops Baby Loss and Birth Story. Mothers and fathers have come forward to share their grief and remember their little ones who died during pregnancy or soon after. What should have been the happiest day of their life became the very, very worst. The thing that would change them forever.

Baby Loss Awareness Day - 15th October 2014 - Wave of Light

I used to want to live in ignorance, to pretend that this doesn’t happened and that it does’t happen every single day. It was too awful to comprehend. Baby Loss Awareness Week has opened my eyes and I won’t hide from it anymore. This is real and the devastation is real. Whether it was this week, which for some people who came forward it was, or 20, 30, 40 years ago, these parents mourn their loss. The little personality they didn’t get to know as they watch them grow.

Baby Loss and the Wave of Light

Today at 7pm across the world people are lighting candles to remember these little ones and acknowledge their parents’ grief and pain. Keeping the candle burning for 1 hour means that the light will continuously burn around the world for a whole day and we can unit.

So today, as I collect names of the little people who are loved and who made a huge impact on the lives around them in such a short time, I light a candle for each and every one and remember them.
