Why I’m not having any more children

I miscarried before I had Jenson. It's something that I'm pretty open about these days. I wrote about it a week after it happened but didn't publish it until long after. It took me a while to process. Since then I have a totally different attitude to talking about children with people who don't have… Continue reading Why I’m not having any more children

It's been a crazy week for blogging.

Does anyone else have weeks… Continue reading Saturday Share #66

I didn't intend to make this week's blog posts all about miscarriage but I was inspired to share my experiences as it's Baby Loss Awareness Week.

Baby Loss Awareness Week: What nobody tells you about ‘early’ miscarriage

In honour of Baby Loss Awareness Week, I'd like to share a post which I wrote over a year ago but never published. I drafted it a week after I lost my first baby because I felt that people who haven't experienced a miscarriage don't know enough about it. Until it happened to me, I… Continue reading Baby Loss Awareness Week: What nobody tells you about ‘early’ miscarriage
