A Drug Named Hope

There is life after baby loss

About

Hi readers, let me introduce myself…

My name is Gurinder Mann and I’m a 33 year old professional, wannabe entrepreneur, wife, and now a blogger of sorts! I adopt a mindful approach to life, take time to travel, volunteer for charity, invent ‘clean-eating’ recipes and then balance it out with naughty baking and generally just try to be a nice person.

So, with the pleasantries out of the way here’s the part that people probably don’t know about me and the bit that will make most of you too uncomfortable to read on and follow my journey. I am a mother to 7 babies. Yes, that’s right, 7! But none of my babies live on this earth, they were all born straight into Heaven. I’ll give you a moment to process that and decide if you want to read on…

…to those that have chosen to leave, it’s ok, I’m not offended and I appreciate your attention to this point. Have a lovely day.

…to those that have chosen to continue reading, I thank you on behalf of every miscarriage sufferer for sparing some time to try and understand what we are going through.

I suspect those of you that are reading this fall into one of four categories:

  • You yourself have suffered from miscarriage(s)
  • You know someone who has suffered from miscarriage(s) and would like to better understand what they are going through
  • You don’t know much about miscarriage and had no idea it could keep happening to the same person
  • You just want to have a nosey into my story and see what’s wrong with me

Whichever category you fall into, its ok. I welcome you to this blog and I really hope you get something from it.

So, why have I chosen to start blogging about miscarriage, almost 3 years after experiencing my first loss? The truth is, I am stronger now than I have ever been and I don’t care what people think of me anymore. I am who I am, my journey is my journey and I cant change it, but I can change what I choose to do with it. If by writing about my experiences I help just one person find the strength to live with hope despite their miscarriage or if one person reaches out to that friend who is suffering in silence, my journey will have been worth it.
