Every miscarriage and everyone’s physical and emotional
response to it is different. Each person deals with loss and stress in different ways. Because of this,I have decided to start something new. I have asked the people who have
received something from us if they were willing to share their stories with us. We have
been met with all positive responses from those who have been asked if we could share their stories. Due to privacy concerns I will not be
sharing names. I will try and get a new story out each week. As of right now we have five stories to share over the next five weeks. Let the Stories Begin...
Our first story comes from a women who found out she was
pregnant at a very difficult time in her life. Prior to finding out that she
was excepting she had spent 10 days in the hospital psych ward. She had been
battling major depression and anxiety, and had recently begun having suicidal
thoughts. After her 10 day suicide watch she was given medication and sent home. After
only being out of the hospital for only three days she had to be taken back because
of an allergic reaction.
Once back in the hospital for her allergic reaction it was
discovered that she was pregnant. This news came as a complete shock to her. Then
came the scary news. The medication that the doctors had put her on for depression and anxiety was
dangerous for her pregnancy.One of the medications was even a category X. This
type of medication has demonstrated fetal abnormalities and has had positive
evidence of human fetal risk. So she had to stop taking the medication at once.
Right after she found out she was pregnant she made an appointment with an
OBGYN to have an ultrasound. As they brought up the image our mother-to-be
noticed that there were TWO Babies.TWINS! Sadly, just moments later she was informed that
one of her babies did not have a heartbeat. She was six weeks along. She says
that it was the worst day of her life.
She was able to carry the other baby to term and she now has
a beautiful four-year-old son. She is so happy to have her son to hold in her arms, but her heart
still aches with the loss of her other child.
Hey Everyone! It's been a busy first month of the New Year for Rows For Remembrance. We have expanded the services that we offer and we have taken on new orders. The first set of orders for the year have been completed and sent out in the mail today! I will be posting pictures soon.
We are also going to be trying something else this year. Here on our blog we are going to begin to share the stories of some of the people who have come to us to have something made to remember the life of their Child(ren). We will not be including the name of the people, just their stories. If you already have a blanket or cross stitch, plan on applying for one, or just want to share your story, you can. Just message Rows For Remembrance on your facebook page.
We are now going to be taking orders for more cross stitches or blankets.If you would like to have something to remember your loved one please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just message us on our facebook page and I will get an application to you.
