Survivor’s Guilt? In short, this was all my fault – Still Standing Magazine — Loss, Grief, Bereavement and Life Transitions Resource Library

The utter heartbreak of delivering a stillborn, a baby who is premature-IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT!!  When a baby does not make it to fruition, it is in the cards that it be so. One born with complications…think about it.

I had two miscarriages and I get it. I delivered one at home so I know the pain, I know the sorrow…

But, as I had one child already I knew I could do it. My timing was not right, my body was not ready. My first took over two years to sleep through the night so I was sleep deprived. My body, my mind was tired…

I focused on me. I did therapeutic massage therapy, acupuncture, took herbal supplements to get my strength back. I spent time with family and friends and eventually a 2nd was born.

Do not give up hope and realize sometimes the universe has a different plan.
