A beautiful EB member’s baby was stillborn late last year. She is hurting so much, but doesn’t feel up to reaching out for support here. So with her permission, I’m starting a thread for her. I know that she will be reading.

Dear EBer, I am so terribly sorry for your terrible loss. I am saddened to hear that you are having a rough time. Please consider reaching out to local loss groups. I think a part of most people's grief is a feeling overwhelming isolation. I hope you can feel some comfort from this thread.

Dear EB sister, I’m so sorry for the loss of your precious and beautiful little one. I’m hope you and your partner have loving people around you to share in your grief.
Be gentle with yourself and with each other, and know that when you are ready to share, there are many EB members who would love to hear about your baby.
Much love.

I am so devastated to hear of the loss of your beautiful baby. Please know that we are all here for support and that there are also a number of really great support services such as Bears of Hope. A good psychologist who specialises in women’s health/ pregnancy and infant loss can also be invaluable as you negotiate the rough waters of grief. Please know you are not alone. My heart is aching for you.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
If you ever want to talk about your beautiful baby,  PM me,  I'd love to know about your little one and how you are going.

I know of a great psych who specialises in infant loss based in western Sydney- my friend found her very helpful.
She also accessed support through SAND.

Man reality is a real b**ch sometimes.

I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't imagine the grief you must be experiencing. My heart goes out to you.

If and when you feel ready I would love to hear about your baby. Also if and when you are ready please share how you feel and how you are managing hour to hour, day to day. It must be such a struggle and may help to discuss it here.

PS. Thanks OP for starting this thread, it is very kind of you.
