hi, mamas.

i won't post details here, i will post my birth story later in the grief and loss. but my baby matthew was born at 34 weeks on friday. he weighed 4 lb 9oz and was so tiny and perfect. i'm just in shock and i'll miss being part of this ddc.

btw, if anyone has had a similar loss, i would love it if you emailed me at christie.provost@gmail.com

Vegan, homeschooling mom to my 3 boys and my girl, missing Matthew born still at 34 weeks

Christie,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Right now I hover between the July and August DDC - I'm due with my 3rd in early August.

Last August my second son died after his birth. You will find great support and comfort over on the Loss thread - I know I have. There are many who reluctantly wear the same shoes.

for your beautiful Matthew

We grieve with you and are here when you need us.
