I'm so very sorry for your loss, but want to thank you for writing your story.

I've had two homebirths and I'm positive now that I had placenta abruption with my first homebirth. Everything turned out fine and I have a healthy son, but reading your story makes me think about what could have happened. I remember bleeding really heavy with all my contractions and passing large clots. Then my contractions were so bad that I was screaming during them. I was so loud that my husband was getting worried that the neighbors would hear me.

Dear Liz, I cannot imagine your pain.

My neice was born still, I don't think there is anything more painful. There are no words.

Aquila is so very beautiful. Thank you for sharing her story with us.

Happy birthday to Aquila.

 

I know the midwife you used- I almost used her for my first birth, when I lived in South Texas three years ago. I'm so sorry she let you down.

I am so sorry for your loss :( I hope the responsible party is held accountable, and I certainly don't mean you or your family.

It has taken a while for me to be able to finish reading about what happened to you and your Aquila.  I would read a little and then it would become too painful and I would have to "walk away" for a little and come back.  You are so incredibly strong to share this with everyone.  May God's blessing be with you as you continue to heal and through it all know you are helping so many come to terms and work through their own tragedies.candle.gif
