Today, August 4th, is the four year anniversary of the loss of our 2nd baby. I am always saddened to remember this miscarriage and the weeks and months of grief that continued after it.
October 15th is the official Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, so I plan to share much more at that time. However, I'm providing a couple websites below that have been helpful in my healing as well as helping others through their own grief processing. Please feel free to share more books, websites, or online/in real life support groups that you've found to be especially helpful (I'll repost them during Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, as well).
If you have experienced a loss and need someone to talk to while you process the pain, please feel free to contact me at teachertools (at) gmail (dot) com (with the "@" and ".") or leave a comment below with PRIVATE written at the beginning so that I won't post it on this blog. I don't pretend to be an expert or counselor, but I am here nevertheless.
I’m a joyful woman who wears many hats, including: wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter, cousin, friend, teacher, librarian, and follower of Christ. I’m also an ex-public school teacher turned SAHM turned unschooling mom. Our little midwestern family is tremendously grateful for the liberties we have to home school, homebirth, breastfeed, co-sleep, baby wear, non-circ, delay or not vaccinate, and utilize non-punitive, grace-based discipline. We work hard to keep up with the ins and outs of healthy living. It was painful, but we took the red pill and still continue to find new truths daily. I teach just a few short-courses for the local college each year, read and write book reviews and blog on the side. And if you must know, I have an undergrad in music (BA), a masters in library science (MLS), and a masters in educational technology (MEd).
