After decades of dreaming about becoming a mom and what felt like an equally long time trying to conceive, Carly and her husband Bryan were elated to discover that their dream had finally become a reality when she became pregnant. Weeks later, at their first ultrasound, time stood still as the tech struggled to find a heartbeat. The shock and grief of this trauma consumed them as their heavy loss sunk in. Carly was astounded to find that this very common experience existed mostly in silence. Why aren’t people talking about this? Why are women and families left to suffer these devastating losses in isolation when they could be comforting and supporting one another? She decided to start a conversation by courageously posting their experience on her Facebook page and was amazed at how many people responded with gratitude and encouragement after voicing her pain which, in turn, gave others the permission to voice theirs. We are grateful Carly was game to share here on Mother Love and hope her story breaks even more of the silence surrounding infant loss and miscarriage.
