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 and only 19 of age I couldn't believe this was happening to me and all the doctors could say was it was one of them 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 lived for 5 mins weighting 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.
