I was meant to release a different blog this week but I am so passionate about raising awareness on baby loss. This is a sensitive subject for me but I will brave it off and share this. Baby loss awareness week is from 9th till the 15th October this year. 1 in 4 pregnancies end up in miscarriage. I am 1 in 4. So here's the following from a recent post of mine:
Please stop saying “at least it was early”
Please stop saying “it wasn’t the right time”
Please stop saying “you can always try again”
Please stop saying “everything happens for a reason”
Please stop saying “at least you weren’t THAT pregnant”
Please stop saying “you are so young you can just try again”
Whether you lost your baby at 6 weeks.
Whether you lost your baby at 12 weeks.
Whether you lost your baby at 16 weeks.
Whether you lost your baby at 20+ weeks.
Your pregnancy loss matters.
Your grief matters.
Your tears matter.
