A baby is a blessing in disguise, and every parent would do anything in their power to keep their child safe and healthy. However, we live in a world where not every plan goes according to us and not everything is in our countrol. Losing a baby is the most devastating feeling. It is like someone showed you what happiness feels like and then took it away from you.

This is by far the most personal post that im ever going to write,With hopes that i can make atleast a little difference in someones life... At first i didnt want to talk about it to anyone at all... But then after having counselled more than TWO DOZEN women over dmz on instagram all over the country, I realised it is time I openly talk about ‘MY MISCARRIAGE’ The most important takeaway for me from this experience was.... DONT KEEP RELIVING THE PAST. DONT KEEP WAITING FOR THE FUTURE. JUST SIMPLY LIVE IN THE PRESENT. I hope this helps…” Take a look:
