The strongest mothers... — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

The strongest mothers...

I always say... The strongest mothers out there are the ones who have lost a child or have a special needs child. It must take a lot of strength to overcome a death of a child (m/c, still birth, pre-nate, etc) and a lot of strength to take care of a special needs child. My respect goes beyond words for the women who have had these moments in life.

Re: The strongest mothers...

  • Thank you for the post.  It took some confidence to stay positive and TTC again after my first two miscarriages.  And I still do not know how I got through my 3rd pregnancy with a red bleeding episode in the first trimester only to have a preemie who spent 35 days in the hospital--all I could do was just go to the hospital every day for 35 days (and then laugh hysterically when the insurance got billed for his hospital stay--thank goodness for the government programs that helped us through that time).  When I look at my son, I just smile.  He is very special, and I am very blessed.

     So true!  Thank you for this post.  I needed to see this on a day I am feeling so sad.

  • Your welcome. I just wanted to let everyone know willing to read this that although you may not feel strong at this point, some people won't experience this kind of sadness or tough time in life, and those who do, well, you are amazing for waking up everyday and doing what you do. :)
