Miscarriage and Infant Loss Awareness Month *may trigger some people*

Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well.

As a lot of you will know, my husband and I are angel parents of 12 babies that we lost in the first trimester of my pregnancies. We made the difficult decision last year to stop trying as it was affecting me too much mentally and physically to continue.

October is miscarriage and early infant loss awareness month, I'm also aware that a lot of people may be feeling a lot of raw emotions after the sad news that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend lost their baby boy, Jack, recently in late pregnancy. There have been a lot of triggering posts on social media, particularly Twitter, and even I have found it difficult to read some of the comments directed at them and other angel parens.

I try and use this time of year to remember my babies, but also to post and raise awareness of miscarriage, still birth and early infant loss and to let people going through this know that they aren't alone at what is a scary and isolating time. It is still a very taboo subject to talk about but please take the time to check on friends and family, and remind them that you remember them, and their loss. Particularly this year, when so many of us are spending more time alone with our thoughts.

Sending gentle hugs to all who need them, and as always my inbox is always open if people need to talk privately.

My blog post is here, written around half way through our journey, for anyone wishing to read.

What a kind and brave lady you are. we lost 6 babies including one in late pregnancy, we also decided to give up on our dream family and just be thankful for each other. No One acknowledges our losses now as they think it will upset us but angel babies should never be forgotten , take care, i know this month is difficult in some ways but it does help other parents feel they can talk about it.

Thank you for sharing your story, my heart goes out to you and others in a similar position. It really saddens me that it seems to be such a taboo subject, particularly for something that affects so many people xx

My heart breaks for you 💔💔 itís absolutely devastating to lose a child and something you never fully recover from.
This is something that has happened in our family more than once.
My parents lost their first baby at full term 5 years before I was born.
My mumís brother and his wife lost their first baby I donít exactly how far into the pregnancy but I can remember my auntie being heavily pregnant and being warned not to ask questions.
My cousin had 8 miscarriages Iíve had 2 and on 28th September 2013 our daughterís baby boy was stillborn.
