Given the sad statistics that 1 in 4 pregnancy ends in no pregnancy, what is the chance that there are MOTHERS out there who never had the chance to give birth? Mothers in their heart and soul, but no child to show for.
I was touched by my friend, CarlyMarie’s project
The Mother Hearts Project
and her card series. Actually, I love everything she does. Unbiased. Her heart is in it.
I am even more unbiased now that I had the chance to speak to her for two hours last weekend, as part of the interview series for the forthcoming book “Grieving Parents – Surviving Loss As A Couple”.
Another interview I had reminded me of the children I didn’t carry to term, those that are truly invisible. Miscarriages. As part of the research for my book I read again that 30-50% of pregnancy are miscarried in the first 12 weeks and that number only applies to those who KNEW they were pregnant. Imagine how many more unrecognized mothers this leaves.
Let’s remember all Mothers. Join Bereaved Mother’s Day.
