#misCOURAGE story, 27/04/2017, by Helen Gough

After suffering the loss of three recurrent miscarriages and never knowing until the scans with any of my angels I had to endure the agony of d&c operations and tests after tests to be sadly told it was natures way...

So when I fell pregnant again 2016 our hearts leapt for joy at the 12 week scan when all was revealed that our rainbow baby was alive and kicking.

I had regular scans every few months and was consultant led through my whole pregnancy and taking aspirin everyday until the day I gave birth to our rainbow baby 17th December 2016 weighing a whooping 9lb 2oz calling her Amber-Mae.

Holding a baby you never thought you would have is so ... well there's no words that can describe it, the love, the bond is indescribable
