Parenting After Loss

pail-awareness.jpg

A mother, who has dealt with a miscarriage or infant loss, can end up having a lot of anxiety, once they conceive again. And, that was definitely the case for me after I became pregnant after a loss. I also wasn’t ready for the challenge that comes with parenting after a loss.

Earlier this year, I talked about my initial struggles with bringing a baby home for Sharing Magazine. I am so grateful for our baby girl Gracyn. But, there are times that I daydream about our daughter Mackenzie playing the role of a big sister.

So, be sure to take a look at the article to learn how I embrace my daydreams and why I feel that’s okay.

Blessings,

Shannon
