The clinic scanned me weekly and I had to go in for blood tests every two days to monitor my pregnancy levels. It was like living on a knife edge, taking the test in the morning then waiting for a call to say my baby was okay.
As part of the Tommy's #misCOURAGE campaign to encourage people to speak up, I am sharing my experience in the hope that it might make at least one other woman feel less isolated, and to show my support for others who have lost a pregnancy.
We hear so often from parents who have not had concrete answers as to why their baby came early. As the cause is often a mystery, no explanation can be given to the affected parents who are often dealing with very traumatic circumstances.
