I have the memorial service for my baby tomorrow.

I called as I had to as its invitation only for those who have lost a baby at the hospital in the last 4 weeks. They took the name of the baby and my name. As they read the names out and give you a candle and a flower.

Then they walk you to the baby cemetery down the road where the ashes have been scattered.

All babies lost at the hospital are cremated together at the end of the weeks and scattered on the baby cemetery.

Tomorrow will be my first stage of closure and my final goodbye as my body now has negative pregnancy tests.

I miss my baby so much. I still cry every day but it is getting easier now the pregnany symptoms have gone and my belly is near flat again....

Ill update tomorrow xxxx

love and strength to you all. x

The hospital where I had the D&C buries the miscarried babies in a local cemetery. Going to the memorial service and visiting the burial site really helped me. It took me a couple of weeks to finally get a negative on a pregnancy test. It was sad but hope giving. All traces of my pregnancy were gone from my body but my body was starting to be able to prepare for future pregnancies.

It's been 7 months, I still cry about her. It's just a wound that I'll have to carry with me forever. I'm glad there was a memorial to honor my baby's life. Those memorials celebrate their short lives and everyone there knows exactly what you're going through since they've been there themselves. It doesn't take the pain away but it does help you see that you are not alone.

I pray that this helps to bring you closure. I am so glad that you have a place you can go to mourn your loss, and I hope that you conceive your rainbow baby soon, with your little angel smiling down on you!

That sounds like a wonderful service. I wish they offered something like that in our area. I searched high and low and they do not offer anything like that. I also wish they had a support group for women & men who have gone through a loss. It's not such a taboo subject anymore.

That is so sweet that your hospital does that. I hope the ceremony helped bring some peace to you.
