MotherHEARD: Miscarriage

My son Camden was born on September 9, 2017 and forever my life has been changed my life. He was my second child but first to enter this world on earth.  My first pregnancy came and went. I found out I was pregnant with our first child and was ecstatic as any first timer would be. We had been trying for a few months and when I saw the word "pregnant" on the pregnancy test, I was so so happy. I decided a clever way of how I was going to tell my husband. I wanted it to be a surprise but also something that was right to the point. When I told him, he was elated and we were...

MotherHEARD a Rainbow Baby Story

"There it was. Two red lines, indicating that I was pregnant. For most people, this is nothing but good news. For me, someone who had just lost a baby 3 months prior, it was a bit more complicated.  Rewind to July 5th, 2018. I was 15 weeks pregnant with my first baby, and decided to fly to California to visit my parents for a few days. The morning started out like any other with my family; everyone wakes up, has a cup of coffee, then showers and gets on with their day. I followed the routine, and after I showered while drying myself off, I noticed my legs were still wet. Odd, but not anything to worry about. I continued...
