“I have written out this post and deleted it so many times as my biggest fear has been having to tell people but I know that by talking or posting about it, it can be so helpful for anyone going through this painful loss.. to know that your not alone and although that little baby was never born it still has a huge place in your heart.
“The silence after the D&C procedure is deafening because you are left with so many thoughts and questions that can sometimes never be answered. I have found comfort in reading and listening to women who have been through the same thing and I suppose this is why I’m pushing through my fear and speaking out.
“I think it’s part of a positive healing process or maybe it’s just for me to remember that it was real and that little baby did exist and was loved so much. To my husband who has just been my rock .. you are the most amazing man.. I love you and our boys so much and am so grateful for what I already have.”
The couple has been married for 12 years and shares three children together, Koa, Zekey and Cobi.
