While October is Breast cancer awareness month, it is also pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. Did you know that 1 in 4 women experience pregnancy and infant loss in their life time? While that may not be you, it maybe someone you know, a friend, a sister, a cousin and loved one.
I am not 1 in 4 but every time a hear a story, meet a mother or read a blog, a piece of my heart goes out to these women. They are so strong, they are so brave and this is such an important subject we need to talk about. I will always have time for mothers that have felt this pain and will always be a shoulder even if it’s only through the Internet.
Motherhood is hard and it’s rewarding and it’s amazing. There will and are hard times, but remember you are enough. You are worth it and you are loved. Know that if you are 1 in 4 you are supported and you are loved. So this October take a moment, say a pray or spare a thought for women and families that have loss a little one. Although they maybe small even the smallest of feet touch our heart.
