#misCOURAGE story, 05/07/2017, by Anonymous 

I have had 4 miscarriages.

My last one was late in the pregnancy where I almost died due to complications.

Identical twin boys. 6 years on and knowing I won't have children is a sadness that I keep to myself. You learn to move on.

You never begrudge the blessing of others having children, but it hurts. I learnt after a while not to talk about how I feel, people even with the best of intentions forget. It is nice having the opportunity to say something, I rarely talk about it now but they were my heart.

I'm not strong but you do survive.

Thank you.
