Day 87

This book has become my priority now other than working through my grief. I want to finish it by the end of January. It is a collaboration between myself and some pretty amazing angel mums. There was a nudge on my shoulder a few weeks after Hamish’s birth to write this book. It is not a ‘How to Guide’ but more of a this is how I handled losing my son and how I am dealing with my grief. It’s a book saying I see you, I feel you, I hear you and you are not alone on this journey. I want all angel mums going through this to not feel alone. As when you are in that hospital maternity unit and you are the only one with the dead baby you feel pretty alone. You are scared shitless of leaving that hospital room to only bump into a happy new mother. You feel so empty and hearing the cries of the healthy babies in the other rooms only further cracks your heart in two.

I decided I wanted to create this free resource that can be shared with mothers that have either lost their baby before birth or after. There are amazing social workers, midwives and doulas out there that do an amazing job holding space for mothers during this time. I would love for this book to add comfort and help ease the pain slightly. I have 6 mothers on board so far and I am looking for a few more. If you are reading this and you have lost your baby and keen to be a part of it please reach out. I will leave my email at the end of this blog post. Even if you don’t want to be a part of this book and you want to reach out anyway send me an email. I am just following my heart each day and I want to help others going through this pain.

Thank you Hamish for helping me put this together. I know it is not the book I was planning to write a few months ago. I know now how important this will be in the future for other mums going through this. 

My email is please reach out if you feel called.
