In 2018, my husband and I were thrilled to find out we were expecting a baby! We began hoping, dreaming and planning. Sadly, these dreams were cut short about two months later when we lost the pregnancy. I was devastated. I questioned everything I knew about life, God, and everything in between. Eventually, I decided to get help and received counseling from Still a Mum. For the first time since my miscarriage, I felt hopeful. The counselor created a safe space for me to articulate my thoughts and helped me establish a roadmap to recovery. Still a Mum saved my life!
“My connection with Still A Mum was through loss. I joined a support group where I received immense support. Since am a qualified counsellor, I decided to give back and help parents going through loss in Still A Mum. I love giving back what was given to me, an avenue to talk without judgment. Someone who understands and is willing to listen. I have gotten to read the most touching stories, most emotional stories. And this has given me an opportunity to meet some really strong women. And if I get to connect with just one in a group, I consider myself blessed."
I had two miscarriages in 2015, both past 20 weeks of pregnancy. To date, it remains the most daunting period of my life, it strained a couple of my relationships, I got into depression and lost hope. I heard of Still A mum and decided to reach out. I was in the very first physical support group class. It was comforting to find people who understood what I had gone through. I now have 2 beautiful girls - twins. I am so glad I actively did something about my grief. I feel it has made me a better mother.
