Doing the kind of work I do with pregnant women, I hear so many incredible stories. When Kelly sat in my chair and shared hers, I was really blown away by her love and patience. She requested her design incorporate her daughter, her unborn baby boy, and her 4 miscarriages - all with birds. After I had completed the design I stared in wonder at what looked like a rainbow behind the birds - I hadn't intended on incorporating this symbol, but it just came through anyway (rainbow-babies are babies conceived after a miscarriages).
Her daughter came along with her for the photo session when the henna was peaking and got some great photos of them together!
Her mothering journey was remarkable, especially in that she found the support she needed. Her baby boy was born healthy and I was thrilled to see them both after the birth & share in her happiness for his safe arrival. Read all about the resources she found! One thing women tell me is that miscarriage is not talked about enough, and so this issue delves into the stories of several mothers sharing about how they have processed this grief.
