Sending love and healing light to you and your DP. My heart breaks at the news, but I am happy that you were able to spend a little bit of time with your beautiful daughter in the moments after her birth. I hope you are both able to find some closure and peace during this difficult time. Our thoughts are with you
Oh mama I am so sorry.
I lost my first son shortly after birth 5 years ago... and ended up founding a local grief group for mothers who have lost babies to SIDS, stillbirth or late term complications. These first six weeks are the most confusing, you're just sort of floating in circles. Stay close to your partner, and stay open, and seek help when you need it (and you will, please don't assume this is about "strength"... it isn't) because this can be one of the worst things your marriage will go through once the grief hits hard. Remember that however you grieve is right, normal and healthy - there is no wrong way.
The baby loss forums here on MDC were a really big help to me in the first 1-2 years. I highly recommend them.
The pain of losing your child never truly goes away. As we like to say in our group, the wound stops bleeding but never truly heals: you just learn to live with the scar.
Oh PunkElmo, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your baby girl sounds beautiful, and I'm thankful that you and your partner that you were able to spend time with her and take pictures. Keeping you both in my thoughts. Cuddle your kitties close - they'll have so much love to give you through this.
