Baby Loss: Start Here

I also share about our lives after losing our first child, Aiden, in 2010 when he was 19 days old.

Losing a baby or child has a huge impact on you, it changes everything. I know firsthand how heartbreaking it is. One thing I have learned is that losing a child is a very isolating and lonely experience. Connecting with other parents who have also lost a child is so valuable. It helps so much to know that you aren’t alone in your grief, and to know you aren’t going crazy.

In the early days after losing Aiden I often felt like I was losing my mind. Hearing other people’s stories and experiences gave me reassurance that what I was feeling was normal and I wasn’t the only person feeling this way. My hope is by sharing my experiences of life after losing Aiden, what I’ve learned along the way, and what I’m still struggling with, I can help a bereaved parent just like me, know they aren’t alone.
