Once again I am opening up a corner here for October Guest Post Submissions. I am running a series of posts throughout October – Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month.
Last year I opened it just for Neo and post-neonatal deaths.
This year I would like to open it up to anyone who has lost an infant; included during and shortly after birth. You may not want to specifically share your baby, your story but maybe raising awareness of how you come to lose your little one. I, for one never knew babies could die of sepsis even before leaving the hospital; I had always thought it was an infection you pick up going about your daily business.
Maybe you have a letter to your little one or something you want to say to the world.
I would like to run a mini-series to run alongside to include grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings of children lost. Looking at a different perspective of losing such a young relative; or watching your family member go through such pain and maybe feeling helpless.

Having an understanding of such a complex type of grief can be so difficult, leading to feelings of loneliness.
For one month, I am aiming to bring not only awareness of baby loss in general, but to bring people together in their grief. It is incredibly hard to understand something when you’ve not been through it.
If you would like to add something then please email me
We’re in this together.
