Haircuts and dentist appointments are now my least favorite activity. Whose decision was it that these kind of appointments should be a personal interview of the client and all the details of his/her life? I want to become a hairdresser simply so that I can advertise my business in the following way: “no personal questions will be asked” “I will respect your privacy” and “clients will have the option to either listen to a podcast while her hair is getting cut or talk about neutral things such as good movies and favorite music groups.” The name of my hair salon would be No Questions Asked...Unfortunately that has never been my experience as a client. I am always bombarded with questions about my personal life, the hardest question after Nelson died being “how many kids do you have” and “do you plan on having more?” It puts me in such a difficult position. Do I say I only have one even though in fact I have two and one of them died? If I do say two do I then have to proceed in explaining the details of what happened? Or if I say I only have one do I then have to actually pretend that it’s true?? For bereaved mothers like myself, that weighted question sucks BIG TIME...I had an appointment with the dental hygienist about 3 months after Nelson was born. I intentionally switched dentists because I didn’t want to face the previous one who had seen me pregnant and would surely be asking me questions about the new baby that I didn’t bring home. Unfortunately, the new dental hygienist OF COURSE asked me the standard question that all dental hygienists ask: “how many kids do you have?” Wanting to protect myself in that vulnerable moment I said “I have one child” even though it hurt to say it. She then proceeded to talk about having children for the entire hour of my teeth cleaning. And of course she had two children, and one of them was a baby. So she talked about breastfeeding, sleep training, her older child’s adjustment to the new baby, etc. etc. etc. It was awful! Really, really awful. She had no idea how much what she was saying hurt...I had a haircut today and when asked again I said “I have one child.” It hurts to say it, but it also hurts to have to explain.
Peace of my heart
If you don’t have anything to hope for, you have no use for faith.Your faith will not rise above your confession. Perfect faith cannot exist where the will of God is unknown.The bigger you make God, the smaller your problems will become, and the more faith will rise in your heart.#alittlepeaceofmyheart #2017 #jhenejoliebraynen #robyn #beencouraged #peaceofmyheart #missingyou #angelbaby #momofanangel #babywithwings #alwayswithme #infantloss #infantlosssupport #encouragement #momsupport #pregnancyloss #stillborn #miscarriage #bepositive #babyloss #foreverourbabies #iam1in4 #heavensangels #mybabyhaswings #grievingmom #bereavedmother #pregnancyandinfantloss #pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonth #pregnancyandinfantlossmonth

I know it's late, but in honor of October's #pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonthI wanted to share a letter I wrote to our little ones a while ago...we've come a long way this past year and are humbly in a much better place emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I hope that what we went through and our story somehow helps others...if it helps even one person get through a tough time or sheds light on what a loved one may be going through, we'll be happy and will continue to always try to pay it forward...so thanks for reading and being part of this journey with us#onebangbg#iam1in4
Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month may be over, but there's never a wrong time to support a friend (even one you follow on Insta!!) or bring awareness to the topic of loss. Together we can make this topic less taboo, more understood, facilitate healthy conversation around grief, loss & healing, & be a light to someone suffering. My dad always said, "MAKE it a great day." Wishing you all strength & love. Make today & every day of November a great day by sharing, supporting or an act of kindness..#pregnancyandinfantlossawareness#pregnancyandinfantlossawarenessmonth#pregnancyloss#infantloss#miscarriage#miscarriagesupport#miscarriageawareness#miscarriagesurvivor#grief#loss#rainbowbaby#pregnancyafterloss#infertility#infertilitysucks#infertilityjourney#infertilitysupport#ttc#ttccommunity#ttcaftermiscarriage#ttcjourney
