Living with grief




What is grief?

Grief is all the feelings you have when someone close to you dies. You may find it hard to believe that your baby died. You may want to shout or scream or cry. You may want to blame someone. Or you may want to hide under the covers and never come out. it may seem more than you can handle. You may feel sad, depressed, angry or guilty. You may get sick easily with colds and stomach aches and have trouble concentrating. All of these are part of grief


When your baby dies from miscarriage , stillbirth or at or after birth , your hope of being a parent dies, too. So much of what you wanted and planned for are lost. This can leave a large, empty space inside you. It may take a long time to heal this space.


The death of a baby is one of the most painful things that can happen to a family. You may never really get over your baby’s death. But you can move through your grief to healing. As time passes, your pain eases. You can make a place in your heart and mind for the memories of your baby. You may grieve for your baby for a long time, maybe even your whole life. There’s no right amount of time to grieve. It takes as long as it takes for you.

Healing. And other mountains.

Happy New Year! How are you? And we start again..... the decorations and tree packed away for another year, extended family gone home, kids back at school and normality (whatever that is), returns....
