I haven't been on this board in a while, I wanted to wait until everyone had had their babies before breaking my news here.

My son Victor was born on May 13, 4 days after his due date, a wonderful HBAC. At some point during birth his oxygen supply was compromised, and he suffered severe brain damage. He lived for 6 days, and passed away on May 19.

I have posted a story on the birth loss forum.

Sadly, I came here today and found out about Cristina's baby, and with Coleslaw's we now have three tragic losses from this birth club.

I wanted to thank all of you here, although I didn't post much I sure read and learned a lot from your experiences and advise.

Give a specially warm hug to your babies for me today.

Elena

Ohh Elena, I'm so sorry! There's things I want to say but I know at this time it'd probably not be the appropriate time. I'm glad you were able to have your precious one for those days and my prayers are with you through this time. *sigh* I'm sorry, Kitty

I'm so very sad reading your story ~ it's especially sad when birth and death touch each other so closely. Please know that your little one will not be forgotten here. I will be praying for you and your family.

Elena, I'm so sorry to hear about Victor. Your story is heartbreakingly similar to that of one of my best friends, who lost her sweet baby girl almost 3 years ago. I wish I had words of comfort.
Wishing you peace & strength.

Dear Elena,

to you and your family. The story of your days with your son in the NICU touch my heart deeply as both my children started life in the NICU. My thoughts are with you and the other May mamas who have gone through such a loss. Take care.

Hope
