As an advocate for angel moms and dads, Darcea Handy says we've made great progress recognizing the need for parents to have time to grieve after the loss of a baby during childbirth. Some countries are doing better than others, she breaks it all down...
It can be difficult after losing your child to continue spreading the love to other friends and family members; however, they are counting on you to be there for them. Not only will your ability to spread the love help them get to a place of healing, it will get you there as well.
You've spent nine months waiting to pour all your love into your baby who didn't come home with you from the hospital after delivery. After your newborn goes up to heaven, what happens to that nurturing spirit inside you that was waiting to rock, nurse and comfort your newborn? You can channel that energy and help someone in need in the process.
How do you handle going back to your job after you've lost your baby? What do you tell people when they ask to see photos of your child? Do you send out an e-mail? Talk to everyone face to face? Darcea Handy tells her story and offers advice to other Angel Moms and Dads.
Darcea Handy's only son died shortly after birth, making her an angel mom to Ayden who would have been a teenager this year. She talks about the hardship of leaving the hospital without her child, but finding the hope she needed to live life after her loss.
