Perhaps you had a miscarriage.
Perhaps you dream of having a baby but you’ve been labeled “infertile”.
Perhaps your birthing experience was traumatic, even though you have a healthy baby.
You are told you should just “get over it”.
I know my baby is not gone. I know she comes to visit me whenever she wants and whenever I need her. I’m not a psychic or a medium, at least not any more than anyone else, but I sense her.
Here are some examples of how she shows up to me:
Dear Sister In Loss,
You were seeking help for continuous bleeding after your abortion. You called my friend to get an appointment, but she had no room in her schedule that week so she called me. I just reopened my practice after the loss of my own newborn and had some room in my schedule. She asked if I could work with you. I had to think long and hard about that.
The emotions that go along with being a mommy are intense! They may be especially so because I’ve been up since 3 AM and breastfeeding my growing baby all night before that. It could also be because we have two very special days in our family this month, one of them being the 4th anniversary of Kalis’ birth.
