#misCOURAGE story, 02/03/2017, by Natalie
Today should have been the due date of my first baby. I was scared about how reaching this day would feel, but becoming pregnant a second time gave me hope and comfort that I would get through it.
Unfortunately that also came to an end and left me with another due date to not look forward to, and a third loss just a couple of weeks ago only compounded the feelings of grief and loss for myself and my husband.
So today is far harder than I thought it would have been. I am sure that the rules around receiving care after three miscarriages has some basis, but I believe this should change as it is utterly gruelling to have to endure this kind of loss.
