In the past four months I have gone through 2 pregnancy losses. (A lot of people do not realize I have just gone through the second one) The first one I was 18 weeks pregnant with my daughter Noelle Star when my water broke and she was born. The second was just a week ago when at 10 weeks our baby's heart just stopped beating and I delivered our son Noah Thomas at home. I have 7 beautiful, wonderful living children and they were not easy pregnancies (I also had 2 early losses a long time ago) My time having children is done and it is time to move forward with my true calling. My dream is to becom a Birth and Bereavement Doula by training with Still Birthday (www.stillbirthday.com) because like they say a pregnancy loss is still a birthday. I have the experience, and the compassion to be a support to pregnant women no matter what they are going through. I would love this formal training to better prepare myself to be everything I can be for other families whether they are going through the healthiest of pregnancies or the worst nightmare every parent fears. I know what it is like to lose a child, and I would love nothing more then to train to be able to maybe help take some of that burden and pain away.
