Why I decided to talk about my pregnancy loss
At 22 years old, within 6 months I had had 2 miscarriages. I couldn’t wait to have kids. Having had 2 opportunities to become a mum and having both taken away from me, it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to face. Luckily for me, third time lucky and my rainbow baby was born on September 20th 2017 at 3.30am! Suddenly I could breathe again and I had everything I ever wanted in Aiden. He really was our rainbow at the end of our storm.
Through all this though I never really felt like I grieved properly for the babies I had lost. I openly talk about these pregnancies (with those that know of my pregnancy loss, which is very few people) but I want to share my story with everyone. So many women and men do not talk about miscarriage, particularly before 12 weeks. We don’t need to hide the babies we never had the chance to meet, and I’m hoping that by sharing my story you’ll feel inspired to share yours too. Because no matter what, our babies in the sky will always be ours and always have our hearts. I hope to create a community of mothers, and fathers! who support each other and help each other no matter what stage of grief we are at. God only knows I didn’t want to talk about my miscarriages before now and a small part of me still doesn’t want to let myself be so open and vulnerable; but be sure to sign up to my mailing list for updates on new blog posts and to follow my story and when you are ready to share your story I will be here to listen.
My name is Addis and this is my journey to motherhood. My partner, Addy and I have a little boy called Aiden… yes I know Addy, Addis and Aiden all A’s… it was by design! I hope to share our lives with you, in all its reality! No glamorous Instagram posts! Stained clothes, messy dinner times, no makeup and the same old routine. Before Aiden my passion was business, having recently graduated with a degree in HR, but since Aiden, he has become my biggest passion. I’ve often heard the saying if you do something you love you’ll never have to work a day in your life. So I decided to share my love of Aiden and being a Mum with the world. When I look at Aiden, when I hold my baby close and breathe him in.. I know I was Made for Mothering.
