I no longer feel safe sharing details of my birth on MDC, with the climate what it is right now.
I no longer feel supported or safe in this community.
I am extremely thankful for all of the wonderful and sincere support I have received, and it is a shame that a few bad apples can ruin the entire barrel.

I have lost a child as well.
Be very gentle with yourself, mama. The next few days and weeks will be all over the place, but allow yourself to go through this process. Everything you are feeling is NORMAL. It's okay. Do what feels right.
The loss board here and http://www.misschildren.org/forums/
were incredibly healing places to be. Lots of other women who've btdt.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
So very sorry for your loss and angry for the way you were treated at the hospital.
So much love going to you, Heatherly
