Home stillbirth

OK......so I thought I would share with you the story of stillbirth or miscarriage in second trimester.

Yes, this is possible too to birth unassisted.

My mother scared me with words like "Grandma had a stillbirth, it bled all over the place and then she had to stay in hospital......"

I don't like it when my own mother said those things but i forgive her now. Telling those things adds to my worry and grief.

Anyhow, I knew I had a second trimester still-birth cause I was getting sick and my belly was not growing. No fetal heartbeat with fetoscope at home.

I used herbs in the recipe listed on my blog post: http://www.bubblews.com/news/2207064-choose-life-yet-nature-has-its-ways-miscarraige-stillbirth

The contractions came on a day later and then the miscarriage/still birth came. Contractions were longer and I got a little scared. I should have stayed home husband came home. Miscarriage/still birth came out in the car. I was about 26 weeks along.

Went in to hospital to get some pitocin to slow bleeding and back home same day.

My still birth did not bleed all over the place like my mother said it would. I didn't have to stay in the hospital 3 days.

Baby had died at 20 weeks along and had major disability appearance.......

I hope to bury in our garden.

I'm sorry for your loss, and I'm glad you were able to manage it in an empowering way like you did and that you were ok. A lot of the therapies mentioned there seem very gentle, I like that since in this case the body wants to let go at that point, only needs a little push sometimes I suppose.

I think that the social issues that arise are almost more painful.....
