Perinatal Grief and Loss

How Can This Be?

If only more people would say, “I acknowledge your pain and I am here

with you”. I wish I had had this. I look back now and fail to understand

the words and actions of people around me, people who are meant to

love and “know” me, at a time where I was at my weakest and most

fragile. We know that our pain cannot be fixed, but worse than that pain

is feeling isolated and alone it.

Emmerson- Empty Cradle Broken Heart

As I sit here writing this it has been 27 years since the loss of my baby

girl. I remember thinking “how can this be?” You see I was a young

mother of 20 looking forward to my wedding and starting my family

when my world came crashing down. As I sit in the doctor’s office

awaiting the news, I was numb. “I’m sorry your baby organs are not

conducive to life; the doctor began to say”. I don’t recall anything else

until he said, “would you like to terminate the pregnancy”. At that

moment a surge of anger moved through my body, “WHAT?”

The days and months ahead I would begin to anticipate the loss that was

inevitable. I would struggle between connection and disconnection, fear

and joy, pain, and peace. This would be the beginning of many waves of

grief that I had no idea how to handle and neither did anyone else. As

the months came and went so did my passion to live. In the darkest

moments as I sat in silence, I felt lost, alone, and gut-wrenching pain

that could not be soothed.

In the moments of empathy there are no words that need to be said, there

is nothing to be done but rather a supportive presence that whispers,

“you’re not alone”.

I understand how you feel as I experienced the same loss a few years ago, so sorry for you. It often happens during my practice, too because I'm a nursing student. I was always hesitant to express my viewpoints concerning my scope in essay writing. Professional samples gave me the confidence to assert my ideas and back them with solid evidence. This approach significantly improved the persuasiveness of my nursing essays.
