On the first day of Baby Loss Awareness Week, a mother and photographer shares her story on the anniversary of her baby loss.
On this day in history….. nine years ago today, I woke to the worst feeling ever! I was 39 weeks pregnant and my little baby boy who was usually a wriggly little fish in the morning was heartbreakingly still. .. not a movement. Terrified we went to the hospital to be told what I already knew… Our baby’s heart had… stopped.
In that moment our world fell apart and by the end of the day I had given birth to a beautiful but silent little man… perfect in every way except he wasn’t breathing or crying . Our hearts were broken and we became a statistic… 1 of 11 other parents whose life was turned up side down by stillbirth that day.
So ironically, today marks the start of #babylossawarenessweek as well as the birth of our little angel and not only will I be lighting a candle today but to #breakthesilence I will be posting no end of links this week and taking part in wave of light at the end of baby loss awareness week too. Many of you have already accepted the invitation to join me which means so much.
So birthday wishes to our little angel Aidan who should be celebrating his 9th birthday today.
Love you forever and miss you always
