I lost my little boy at 23 weeks and 4 days I had to give birth to him. It was one off the hardest things I've ever been through, at only 19 I couldn't believe this was happening to me.
All the doctors could say was that it was "one of those things." I felt like I had completely let him down, why couldn't my body give him what he needed?
I think the worse part of this experience is not knowing why this has happened my little boy. He lived for 5 mins weighing 1 pound and on my notes he was still classed as a miscarriage. That word miscarriage is always hard to hear I do think there is not enough awareness or support for women that have to go through this heartache.
How can we get closure when we just don't no why?
