ConFlower - January 4

Myself andf my partner suffered the loss of our baby girl at 23 weeks gestation. Its been 7 months since she passed and for that whole time ive felt massively low and unmotivated every single day. everything in my life came crashing down and Ive been at a point where I dont know what i want to do with my life all i can think about is how i didnt get the chance to be a mother with our daughter, we have no other children and the emptiness feeling is tearing me apart. I just want another baby so i can be the mom i planned to be when i fell pregnant with our baby girl, but my partner has struggled with our loss a massive amount too and is mostly scared that we will lose another baby and go through all of that pain all over again despite knowing the very low risks of it happening again, despite the reassurance from nurses doctors and midwives at the hospital telling us ill be looked after very closely throughout my next pregnancy.. what can i do to help him feel more comfortable about the idea? the relationship between us has become much stronger over the past few months which makes me think he may warm to it, but every time my period comes I feel like crying, someone help please lol :(

Flower, depression hits each of us differently. It can be especially difficult when you get a monthly reminder. You can both hope that the pain will diminish with time, helped by focusing on other projects to redirect your minds. You might both benefit from counseling not about the risk of another loss but about how to escape from depression itself.
