Pregnancy loss is still such a taboo topic. It’s an extremely difficult topic to discuss because everyone grieves differently. . . A little over 5 years ago we found out we were pregnant with baby number 3. It was a complete surprise. I started bleeding around 7 weeks and went in for an ultrasound and the tech couldn’t find anything. So we monitored for weeks before finally at around 11 weeks, they finally realized it was an ectopic pregnancy, in my Fallopian tubes. Once they realized, they sent me almost immediately to the hospital for a shot if Methotrexate to terminate the pregnancy. For months I struggled internally with this, I don’t think I discussed it with anyone. It was the hardest thing for me to grasp, knowing that my actions are what caused this unknown child to cease to exist. Obviously, rationally, it was required. But emotions aren’t always rational. I didn’t shy away from telling people what happened at first, but you would not believe the things people would tell me. . . “At least you already have two kids.” The most heartless thing to say. Just because I have two children, doesn’t make the hurt any less worse. It doesn’t ease the pain knowing what could have been. It doesn’t erase any feelings of loss or emptiness that I struggled with daily. It’s no wonder why it’s such a taboo topic because people can be so heartless. If someone tells you about their loss you absolutely should never say “well at least you know you can get pregnant.” Or “Usually miscarriages happen because there’s an abnormality.” Which, even though they’re true, no expectant parent wants to hear. When someone tells you they have cancer, do you reply “you know that kills people?” No. You don’t have to state the obvious. Offer your sympathies, and move on. Be there for support. Because even though they may never say it, they’ll need it. Break the silence. Stop the taboo. Spread awareness. Stop the ignorance.

Tonight all around the world we light candles at 7pm to remember babies lost too soon. Some babies were lost a couple of weeks past a positive pregnancy test, some we only got to see on screen, some we got to hold but had to say goodbye to heartbreakingly early. Some people will be remembering a loss from many years ago and some will be lighting candles for a loss so fresh it physically hurts. Some will be mourning a baby no one even knew about, some will be with their families and some will be lighting candles on their own. Some of us will have found our happy endings, some of us will still be waiting and some of us won't know which was to turn. Everyone will have a different story but sharing those stories will only help us all feel less alone. Thinking of everybody who is remembering their little lost star tonight x #breakthesilence #miscarriageawareness #babylossawareness #waveoflight #miscarriage #lightacandle #unitedinmotherhood #mumssupportingmums #motherhoodrising

October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month and October 15th is pregnancy and infant loss awareness day. "When a child loses a parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses his or her partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there is no word to describe them." Baby loss is still a taboo subject. Break the silence. In memory of all the little lost angels. #rip #breakthesilence #october15th

And just like that "life goes on," before you know it there is silence once again. Not just the silence of your baby's birth, but the silence that comes from the one's you thought were closest to you. The silence becomes just as deafening as the room after your baby was born still. People's lives move on and those who've lost a baby feel left behind. I recently attended a family wedding and literally felt like I was a complete outsider looking in. It's really crazy how you can feel so alone in a whole room full of people. So much happiness on their faces while so much pain literally tears you up inside, until it bursts and there you are sobbing into a napkin vulnerable and exposed. Not only that, but you realize some people have been purposely avoiding you, yet you have no idea why because the last time you were together everything seemed fine. There are times where you just flat out feel abandoned, but then in those most painful moments there are a few who come to your rescue. I truly appreciate the one's who lovingly have come to my rescue in these moments. The one's who aren't afraid to approach me. The one's trying to comfort me in these most dark and difficult moments of grief. Thank you because of you I don't feel as alone. Because of you my dark moment turned to light and I was able to enjoy myself the remainder of the night. Life goes on and my pain and grief are forgotten. Life goes on and my baby's name is said by fewer and fewer people. Life goes on and I still feel like I'm living in 2015 when my son was born still. Baby loss is complex. Grief is complex. Your triggers are unexpected. Support, understanding and acknowledgment of our babies and our pain is what we so desperately need. So please in honor of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness DAY and month light a candle at 7pm tonight wherever you are not only for the babies who've died, but for their parent's who continually grieve them. Share it with them and let them know you haven't forgotten. Break the silence once and for all. #internationalwaveoflight #pregnancyandinfantloss #stillbirthfamily #babysullivan #grief #support #7pm #lightacandle #october15th #mybabyisimportant #breakthesilence

#thepeakandpitcollective Trigger post: Baby Loss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Though she be but little, she be fierce.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seven years ago our daughter was born. She was beautiful. Ten days later, after such a strong fight, she passed away. The congratulations cards being delivered were suddenly being replaced with sympathy cards and we were left grasping for something permanently just out of reach. The should have been, that wasn't. . The pain of loss really does change with time. The first year we were knocked down, with wings clipped. It then shifted away from a rawness and into a small, hopeful shoot pushing its way through the grief. Today the pain has been completely replaced with laughter, holidays, jokes and the glory that is Henry and Rosie. Throughout it all Daisy is still very present. We stand together to celebrate such a beautiful life that unites us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So today: We still miss you, Daisy. We wish you were 7. Fly high, little one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

{ we remember } Det gör ont varje dag, nästan ondare med tiden...idag är det exakt 930 dagar sedan hon föddes & jag kommer fortfarande ihåg hennes ljuvliga doft som ofta sveper förbi mig i en lätt vind, jag vet att det är hon...vår dotter. Idag är det även 926 dagar sedan jag pussade på henne för allra sista gången, varenda liten cell i min kropp skriker efter henne & kommer alltid att göra de. Det är ofta som jag stannar upp & frågar mig själv vad vi faktiskt vart med om för man förtränger omedvetet för att orka leva vidare efter sitt barns död. Livet skulle inte bli såhär, varför fick inte vår dotter leva? Vi hade en hel framtid framför oss & allt som vi skulle göra tillsammans. Hon gav oss hela livet samtidigt som hon förlorade sitt...💔 Jag har fött en dotter & hennes namn är Ofelia, det kan ingen ta ifrån mig. . Ikväll klockan 19.00 tänder vi ljus för världens änglabebisar, är ni med oss att bryta tystnaden? Tänd ett ljus & hedra de små som aldrig fick chansen. Dela gärna vidare ditt ljus med taggen #waveoflight2018, ingen kan göra allt men alla kan göra något...👼🏽👼🏻👼🏾👼🏼👼🏿❤️ ————————————————————— This October we remember! The babies born sleeping Those we carried but never held Those we held but couldn’t take home Those who came home but couldn’t stay. October is pregency & infant loss awareness month. I’m 1 in 4.... . . . #änglamamma #änglabarn #angelmom #loppigravidbaby #childloss #waveoflight #breakthesilence

October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Following my own loss in January of 2015, I fell into the darkest depression of my life. In my recovery, I swore that I’d break my silence, shatter this taboo and end the shame surrounding miscarriage. If I can help it, I’ll never let another sister suffer alone in one of the most complex and heartbreaking losses there is. 💖💙 #miscarriageawareness #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #pregnancyandinfantlossremembranceday #im1in4 #breakthesilence #ihadamiscarriage

Today I have my candles lit all day to honour not only the babies lost to myself, my family and friends, but to honour all little ones lost around the world. Remembering and honouring them always. . . Please if you are comfortable comment your angel’s name(s), comment with a picture of your candle burning or comment the candle 🕯 so I can hold space for you and them throughout the day ✨🙏 ✨ . . If anyone needs someone to talk to please reach out. I am here 💖💙 . . #speaktheirname #rememberingthem #yourchildrenmatter #waveoflight #october15th #waveoflight2018 #bereavedmother #bereavedparents #bereavementsupport #bereavementdoula #youarenotalone #breakthesilence #lossmom #infertilitysupport #foreverinourhearts 🕯🕯🕯

Today is International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Today also marks the last day of Babyloss Awareness Week. I would like to invite you all to participate with people all around the world on this special day. Simply light a candle at 7pm local time and leave it burning for at least an hour to remember all of the babies that have passed you soon. This can be done individually or in a group, at home or in a communal space. Wherever you choose to do this you will be joining the global Wave of Light. Post your photo at 7pm with the hashtag #waveoflight to light up the world with their memory. 1 in 4 women will experience miscarriage in their lifetime. 1 in 100 women will experience 3 or more concurrent miscarriages. In 2016, 1 in every 225 births ended in stillbirth. It is more common than you think and it needs to be talked about. #blaw2018 #babyloss #babylossawareness #miscarriage #miscarriageawareness #iam1in100 #breakthesilence

Here’s something we really do need to #breakthesilence on! 1 in 4, what a heartbreaking figure that is💔 I have never really spoken about my experience maybe because it hurt too much to talk about or maybe because it just isn’t talked about but I’m going to now. I post all the time about my two other beautiful children so why should I not post about my third, because I love that little one just as much and I always will💙 something I will never get over is going for my scan I should have seen a tiny little wiggly alien looking baby but instead I saw an empty lifeless black screen. You don’t know true heartbreak until you get news that your baby is never going to be in your arms. I can’t begin to explain what I felt in that moment, too many emotions to process. I had to sign a letter saying they could cremate my child, something I never in a million years thought I’d have to do then I was rushed into surgery to save my life before I could even grieve properly. I felt so selfish that I was letting them save me instead of my baby even though I knew it was impossible for them to do that but it just seemed so unfair. You honestly have to cherish every waking moment you get with your children because they are not to be taken for granted! I’ve bottled this up for coming up two years and it does help to get it off my chest. My social media is like a little diary of my life and I don’t want my little one to not be a part of it anymore. So shine bright little angel baby I love you more then anyone will ever know ✨ #octoberispregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonth #ectopicpregnancy #infantlosssupport #infantawarenessmonth #angelbaby #iam1in4 #octoberawareness #speakout

#metoo This is my story. Up for some truth? . Little did I know I was forced into role play at the age of 5. . I was sexually abused at an age where Telly rubies were my imaginary friends. I don’t know if I remember them anymore but I sure do remember him. Every bit of him. There was no sex education in school to tell me about a comfortable or uncomfortable touch. I thought It was a game but I didn’t know he’d play games with me all my life even though he’s not around. Is this a story of grief, pain or torture? I still don’t know. Yet I live in this country where I read about a rape every other day. It’s been 13 years since it happened to me. And how many more since then? . Will this ever stop? I don’t know. . But will it shut me down? NOPE. . I stand by all those survivors and victims who are looking for a safe space to talk. We can help eachother heal and get stronger to empower those that need us. . I started a movement called @notaloneindia To fight child sexual abuse. I met so many survivors of child sexual abuse both MEN & WOMEN. There were many instances that pulled my faith down and will be many more that will. But that’s not going to stop me fight this battle. . #metoomovement #metoo #childsexualabuse #childsexualabuseawareness #sexualabuse #violenceagainstwomen #fightabuse #abusesurvivor #abuseawareness #strongwomen #womenempowerment #girlpower #unwomenindia #fightviolence #heforshe #indianwomenblog #indianwomen #activist #voiceoftheyouth #shero #socialworker #socialwork #sexeducation #awareness #breakthesilence #taboo #childsafety #bangaloreblogger #bangalore #india
