Im not sure if this is already a board or if it has been suggested but il post and see anyway.
Im sure this board would be a great idea and a very big support group for those mums who have lossed there child. I understand there is a m/c board but is there a board for mums who have lost there children/teenagers etc? I havnt seen this board but i think it would be such a great idea for all those mums who have suffered with such a tragic loss. If there is already this board just let me know.

I think this would be a great idea. I cant imagine the pain of losing a child, and I know I would need specific support. Just my 0.02!

I think alot of people are too hurt to talk about it in person, but getting on the computer and talking about it is a totally different thing. There are no limits and I think this is a great idea! And can probably help alot of woman get through their hurt and anger.

I agree... losing an older child, to me anyway, seems like it would bring on a totally different set of emotions than losing a friend, spouse, parent, co-worker, etc. You're supposed to protect your child. If I ever lost Ben, even at no fault of my own, I know that I would have guilt issues about not protecting him as a mother should. I can't imagine the pain moms feel who have lost older children.

I haven't lost a child but I think this would be a great room. I know some mommies out there have lost an older child and they can't really fit into any other catagory.

I think it is a great idea, I think it will help alot of people that has had this tragic loss and if we (or anyone else for that matter) can help them be able to open up and talk about it then I think it is a great idea.

Brilliant Idea... It would fit nicely into the grief and loss area I think. Esp for moms who have lost older children... they realy have nowhere other than grief and loss to post and it would be nice if they found eachother.

I lost my son when he was 13 days old. I currently post on the parenting after a loss board which is mainly those that have lost a child. It is a very slow board (which is a good thing considering the topic). I'm just wondering if maybe changing the board name to be "loss of a child" or something similar may bring in more people that have lost a child. I think that some people just aren't sure what exactly "parenting after a loss" means. I myself am not exactly sure who all fits in that category either.
