“Are you going to have another baby?” It’s the question to ask these days. It seems like I get asked that question about once a week, though it would probably happen more often if I went out more. Apparently it’s everybody’s business - from my mother’s to that lady on the steps in front of the county building. I let my husband know that I’m not open to even having the conversation about if I’m open to giving our baby a younger sibling yet. That will come with time.
Speaking of time, I just came across an article that reminded me that I would be labeled “Advanced Maternal Age”, or AMA, if I were to get pregnant again.
“Psychological Rank” is a term most of us haven’t heard but have probably experienced at one time or another. I first heard a birth professional talk about it recently. The context in which I hear women complain about it most, though they don’t have the words to name it, is when telling their birth story.

The thing that helped me do that was to consciously raise my vibration.
It can be hard to find resources for healing after the loss of a baby. I couldn’t stomach any of those books on grief and people looking at me with pity in their eyes just made me sick. So I took the woo-woo route to healing. I knew that my baby girl was OK and I wanted her to know that I was too. For more on my journey, you can take a look at my bio.
