My Angel Baby Snatched From My Loving Arms
I lost my son in labour 2 and a half years ago through neglect and complacency of our mid wife. This has still left me devastated and very angry.
I conceived my 2nd son 10 weeks after, which left me confused and guilty. 2 and a half years on I'm still receiving grief counseling which has helped, but I still find myself slipping back and taking my anger out on my partner.
I fear our relationship is on melt down and my son will be affected. I became very ill 4 months after my second son was born and had to hold off another pregnancy until I get my op.
I feel like I'm in limbo again and I might never get another chance to have a brother or sister for my son! I'm angry at other women having babies again.Response from Dr. DeFoore
