    Thank you so much for sharing your story, I am crying my eyes out with not only the pain of your first sons birth but the beauty and joy of your second as well. Your attitude is inspiring, your words so hauntingly emotive and powerful they pierce through the heart while uplifting and empowering at the same time. Your story will help many many mothers without doubt.

    Congratulations on the birth of Oliver, and best wishes for your family.



    Thank you so much.

    Dearest Spring,

    Your story is so special. One that i will never forget. I was sobbing from the start to the end. Your words made me feel as if i was there with you, holding your hand. Harry will be so proud of you, his daddy and his little brother.
    You have really touched my heart. You write beautifully.

    Dear Spring.

    Thank you so much for your story - like many others, it made me cry and cry. It also made me SO ANGRY my blood was boiling over the way some staff behaved. And cry again at how amazing your DH is.

    But also, it has helped me understand the story of my grandmother. I have always known that, in the early 1960s, she discovered her 4th baby had died, and she had to deliver him naturally, knowing that he was dead. I don't think she ever properly recovered - she fostered, then adopted, another boy soon after. That boy (my step-uncle) was from a troubled background, and died of AIDS in the 80s. She has always been an emotionally cold woman, and I had never really considered that she simply may never have recovered from the loss of her little son. I am sure no help was offered, no counselling. She also divorced from her husband soon after.

    thank you for your story - I am sure that it has helped so, so many people.

    Talia, Thank you for your post.

    The very sad reality was that back in the 60's women how had stillborn babies weren't afforded the same opportunity to grieve as we are now encouraged to do. I spoke with a woman in the same age group as you grandmother who lost her daughter. The hospital staff didn't even let her see her daughter and she was wisked away. Her Husband still hasn't even spoken her daughters name.

    I don't know how these ladies survived. I immersed myself in my grief and I think it was the most healthy thing to do.

    If you think appropriate, reach out to your Grandmother. Ask her about your Uncle, she may be so relieved that finally someone wants to know his story or she may not want to talk at all but it's worth a try.
