Yesterday I saw a blog posted on Twitter by Lisa Druxman the founder of Stroller Strides. It was titled, miscarriage…please talk about it. After reading her blog I was inspired to share my story…On September 19th, 2007, my daughter Amelia was born still at 33wks. This was devistating of course but many of the emotions I felt were not what one would expect. I felt a tremendous amount of shame, guilt, and embarrasment. Later I learned these were common feelings among women suffering from pregnancy loss. They never found a cause for my little Amelia’s death, I know I did nothing wrong. However, those initial emotions of shame and guilt still keep me from sharing my experiences. I hope that speaking out today will encourage women to talk about how they are feeling, share your thoughts and experiences. You are not alone!!
