Every year, thousands of babies become angels due to miscarriage, prenatal, postnatal, and neonatal pregnancy loss. Parents expect to pass before their children are left with empty arms and broken hearts. This overwhelming grief hits parents hard, no matter the stage of pregnancy or the age of the baby at the time of loss.
People who haven’t been through this experience may sympathize with your situation, but don’t or can’t know the depth of your pain. Their words may fall short. It’s not because they are being rude or don’t care; it’s just that they just don’t know what to say.
LAYA is a network that connects grieving parents with others who are going through the same situations. Sympathy is appreciated, but through empathy, we garner the support we need to carry on. Find support through Life After Your Angel.
