Day 169

Monday is feeling very overwhelming to me. I don’t have a job to go to right now but I feel like I need to work on my souls mission. I am committed to finishing the book I have been putting together in the next few weeks. I am still chasing a few interviews up and also working on the design. I started a Pinterest board today for the book here. I am so inspired to help other mums heal from their grief. I know that putting this book together has also helped with my own healing. It was what I would have wanted to read when I was in hospital after losing Hamish. It is what would have made me feel less alone. You don’t realise how many women out there are going through what you are when you go through this. No one talks very openly about baby loss, stillbirth and miscarriages. I wish our society was more open about these things. They are a part of birth as much as taking home a healthy baby is. It was quite hard for me in the first few days to find stories of other women going through this. I felt so isolated. I had some of the best support and one of the best social workers. I hate to think what it is like for women who don’t get a high level of support and comfort during this time.

Hamish keep sending me the strength to get this book finished and out to those who need it.
