Today marks the beginning of an important week, Baby Loss Awareness Week. We wanted to take the time to talk about the incredible midwives, doctors and medical professionals who support families through the loss of their baby and beyond. This article was written by a US-based labour and delivery nurse and it beautifully describes baby loss from the perspective of a midwife.⁠
.⁠
"She probably won’t remember that I stroked her arm when her physician verbalized her fears. She probably won’t remember me telling her husband to call her mother. She probably didn’t know that I went home and cried for her, while I was in my bath. And she probably doesn’t know that I’m still thinking about her and writing about this, months and months later."⁠

You can read the full article via the link in our bio.⁠

I often think of the young student midwife who sat with me the whole way through everything. That was in 1982....

Well done for writing this @wendyrichardson . In such devastating circumstances where often there is no explanation it's easy for people to blame the NHS staff. I look back at my baby dying and remember the nurses and the consultant who hugged me with tears in their eyes, some of whom openly cried and I am so pleased they shared their human side. We live in a society where emotions get locked up and I think if nurses show their feelings in that moment of death it shows people that it really is ok to cry.

I remember the nurse who comforted me after my miscarriage I also remember the same nurse 5 months later rubbing my arm to try and help calm my nerves as I had my early first scan for my next baby ❤️ i remember them all, and I’ll never forget the anaesthetist who held my had so tight as I feel asleep as he knew how terrified I was ❤️

I still remember the midwife who was with me when a found out my little boy had passed away. Her name was Val. She came in on her day off after I had delivered my angel to see how I was. I will never forget her kindness and strength ❤️

After my daughter was born sleeping and I was holding her I was talking to my midwife as she was checking my placenta and she was explaining everything to me for some reason I wanted to see everything and know everything that was happening. I said to my midwife that this must be the hardest and horrible part of her job and she simply nodded. The midwife I had that scanned me in the assessment unit came to see me just before I gave birth to say she was going off shift and that she was sorry she wasn’t going to get to see my little girl but she had been thinking about us all day. I don’t think I would have made it through those first few days without my amazing midwives.

I'm still in contact with our midwife from Henry's birth, we requested her for Evies birth too.... She marks Henry's birthday every year still. She and all the maternity staff deserve medals for facing heartbreak as well as joy every day xx

I remember the midwives who helped me through my baby loss and am so thankful for them. The midwife who delivered my baby is a trained bereavement midwife and that training and role is so important. I will never forget the kindness of Emma who was the one who talked us through the dreaded scan (and came to see me when I’d had my little boy), Lisa who helped with everything from paperwork to car parking passes to not leaving my little boy when he was born, Katie who looked after me while I was in labour overnight and Jane who helped my anxieties in my rainbow pregnancy. These ladies are my heroes ❤️
