loss of a child

‘My leg is tingling!’ The morphine wore off. My heartbeat stopped, then my baby’s. I blacked out.’: Mom suffers from PTSD after child loss, now pregnant with rainbow baby, ‘I will always love her’

“I was so close to death. Around 2 a.m. my labor completely kicked in. I fell back asleep until I felt something ‘down there.’ I moved my hand and felt my daughter’s head. ‘They couldn’t find a heartbeat.’ Not a dry eye ever left my room. I saw her still heart, the same heart chambers that were beating so perfectly just a month before. My baby girl was gone.”

‘I heard the devastating words, ‘There’s nothing there.’ There was no heartbeat anymore.’: Woman urges ‘second opinion’ after ultrasound mistake

“My body still felt pregnant even though I had already been bleeding, and I just felt weird. I decided to call my good friend who works at another OBGYN. The next day they told me I needed to come in right away for an ultrasound because my pregnancy levels came back at 30,000. They didn’t know if there was a twin, a pregnancy located somewhere else, or what it was.”

‘I was pregnant with triplets, until I started to bleed. Things went from 0 to 60 in the matter of an hour.’: Mom loses all 3 triplets, gives birth to ‘rainbow baby’ and adopts ‘sweet, perfect’ boy

“The nurses assured me it must’ve been an accident since I had no pain. I listened and didn’t think anything of it. Huge mistake. Not 24 even hours later, I was delirious with a fever and untreated ruptured sac. Once again, alone at the hospital, I had to deliver my babies and say goodbye. I lost not one, but all three of my triplets.”

‘We got the horrifying call in the middle of the night: ‘She’s bleeding from her mouth and we don’t know where it’s coming from and can’t stop it.’: Mom shares grief journey after losing twin to rare heart defect, DiGeorge Syndrome

“She’d been taken in for emergency surgery. The bleeding seemed to have slowed, but they still hadn’t found the source. ‘She’s losing too much blood and I don’t think she’s going to make it.’ But she wasn’t gone…there was still hope. The next time the doctor came in, all hope was lost.”
