Everything I ever wanted seemed to disappear in an instant the moment I lost my baby. This experience, coupled with the subsequent breakdown of my marriage, left me feeling useless and alone.

At 25 years old I felt like a failure as a woman and as a wife. 

Several months on - I have struggled with guilt and I've struggled to deal with all of these new emotions and changes in my life but I'm please to say that I am now doing so much better! The amazing support from my family and friends has shown me just how strong and resilient I am. I now know that life does get better.

If I could give one piece of advice to anyone who suffered miscarriage, it would be that you are never, ever alone!
