This was a perfect gift. Amazon did not put my card message in though.
I was going thru amazon looking for a small trinket i could have a small contest for in one of my baby loss groups. I happened upon this lovely care set. I got like this one, from here given to me from a friend. Looking at this its identical to what I got. Looking at this again brings back so many memories. It was the hardest time i have ever had and hopefully will have. To lose your baby..... I was 24+5 gestation. You may say "why is she so sad she didnt even get to meet her baby before he died, just have another one and get over it!" Yeah i have run into that a couple times.
Every single one of these items are comforting. They say aroma therapy is great for what ails you, well thats true!
I am sure youre not here cause you lost a baby, youre here looking at this for someone you know and/or love. Can i give you some advice as a bereaved mom? If this can save one mom who has just lost her child the pain of stupid comments, than i have done my job.
Do not ever ever EVER say the following to a mom who has had a miscarriage, a stillborn, had a baby die, or any child of any age. If you do say this you are of piece of garbage.
** It was gods will
** You can always have another baby
** There was probably something wrong with him/her.
** God needed another Angel (some people dont mind but most do)
** Atleast you didnt get to know them
** Youre still young
Never expect a grieving mom to:
*** Move on
*** be her oldself again
*** There is no grief time limit, she can grief for a year or 10 or the rest of her life.
***DO NOT AVOID HER, CALL HER, VISIT HER, DONT ABANDON HER - this is a biggie a lot of people get afraid when someone they love loses their child, they stop coming around cause theyre afraid to day something wrong and cause pain. Well she needs you the most during that time. Make sure to call her. Trust me dont say the dumb stuff above and youll be fine. But if she does start crying, just tell her youre sorry if you said anything that hurt her a...
My daughter needed this. I needed it. Thanks.
