Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Day 1.

October 1, 2012

Today is the first day of October.

PREGNANCY AND INFANT LOSS AWARENESS MONTH

This month I will be posting some do’s and don’ts. My goal is to educate you this month. If you have said things on the do NOT list, then read these blogs and learn and change!! Do not make the same mistake twice!

Here is the first do not say.

YOU ARE YOUNG, YOU CAN ALWAYS HAVE ANOTHER

This statement, first of all makes no sense. I got it a lot when my first son died. I was like “Duh, I know I am young and can have more but I wanted HIM!”  It is almost implying that we are heartbroken over the loss of the idea of a baby and not an actual child. These words not only hurt but do not really make sense.

Please remember to NEVER say these words.

Instead of saying that maybe try saying:

TAKE TIME TO GRIEVE, DON’T LET ANYONE RUSH YOU THROUGH THIS PROCESS, IT IS OK TO CRY, YOU JUST LOST YOUR CHILD.

They need to know that it is ok to cry, even months later. They will see the rest of the world moving on and they will still be heartbroken, they need to know that it is ok to take as long as they need. They need to know that you love them and will always be a shoulder that they can cry on if they need it.
