Being catapulted into the world of baby loss and learning how to navigate life after loss is a daunting, isolating and let’s face it, horrendous road to walk. It’s something that none of us ever think we are going to be dealing with, and it is only when you are thrust into the baby loss world, that you realise unfortunately just how common it is and how many of us lose our babies through stillbirth or neonatal death.
I started this blog to help others who find themselves a bona fide member of the club that no one wants to join, to offer solidarity and support to this group of incredibly strong women who don’t know how they will go on but somehow we do. Because we simply have to.
Below are some useful organisations that you can contact whenever you need a little support. You can always hit me up in the comments or the contact me form on the blog too or contact me via Instagram. I know how desperately isolating this can all feel and how sometimes just a little chat with someone in the same (shit) boat as you can help.
