Child/Infant Loss.

Postby sadgirl1123 » Fri Mar 08, 2019 7:25 am

I see a lot of discussion about "life after birth." I figured I would post this topic because I've yet to see any posts about it. I, like many other mothers, have experienced the loss of my newborn baby. I did not miscarry, I carried my son for almost 9 months (he was born at 37 weeks and 3 days). Shortly after giving birth to my son he started having trouble breathing and needed to be taken down to the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Four days later and after having been transferred (by flight) to a different hospital with better equipment (we were told the equipment at our small town's hospital could not keep him alive), he passed away. We're not sure how but somehow after my water broke a RARE bacteria infected my son and I (a uterine infection). The only symptoms I showed was feeling sick and having a fever shortly after giving birth. I was given antibiotics immediately and my body responded well to them. My son did not respond to antibiotics and ended up passing away. For most people the day their baby is born is one of the best days of their life, but for others it can be a nightmare.. I'm so thankful I got to meet and hold my son before he left this world. And I'm sorry to anyone who has been through something like this or has felt this unbearable pain. You're not alone.

I know that you posted earlier this year ago but I just wanted to say I am really sorry for your loss. Your loss is profound, it is complicated because a lot of people won't understand the magnitude of grief that comes losing your child unless they have lost too.

That is heartbreaking. I can only imagine the pain u must feel. I had a 26 weeker weighing 826grams (1Lb 13oz) I myself was extremely lucky. And my son was a lucky one that lived. We did however have some close calls and in those moments I will never forget the feeling of being so scared you can't think straight or anything. My heart goes out to you and others who had to say goodbye so soon after saying hello. My heart aches for you in sadness. My prayers are with you.. Xox

Hi.. sorry for your loss.. i hope you're doing fine now. I also loss my baby last month.. my baby was born on week 38, he had hypoplastic left heart syndrome which a rare heart disease. His case was complicated and had poor prognosis.. we decided to have comfort care to spend as much time as we can with him. He able to survive 4 days long. It was hard to go through the situation since he was our first born but we have to keep positive and keep praying.

It's something no one prepares you for. No one wants to think about it. But it does happen. My son passed away at 38 weeks due to a traumatic birth injury. It's far worse then labor pains it's a pain you live with forever ? I am sorry you know this pain

Hi you are definitely not alone. I gave birth July 25, 2019 and we lost our baby boy 8days after birth due to severe pulmonary hypertension and severe infection. It was the lowest point in our lives. He was our first born, everything during the pregnancy was okay. He had good heart beat and movement but he had difficulty breathing when he came out. But you’re right at least i got to see him, touch him, talk to him and tell him I love him before we lost him.. Our babies will forever be remembered and loved.
