Kindness and compassion is at the heart of my role as Peer Support Ambassador. Having suffered two miscarriages I know how important it is having someone who understands the grief that comes with loss. I really want to give women the support I would have wanted. I feel that this is the next part of my journey through something that affects so many of us.

Having experienced infertility and recurrent miscarriage, I know that talking to someone who has been through something similar really helps. As a Peer Support Ambassador I have the opportunity to listen and support other women and help them on their journey.

I understand what it’s like to lose a baby because I did too. I had our first child with no problems, but when I was pregnant with baby number 2, I started to have issues which ultimately lead to me being induced at 19 weeks and 5 days. Giving birth to our second son who couldn’t make it devastated me. After working through my grief with counselling and being given the all clear medically, I went on to have our ‘rainbow’ twin girls, but our second son will still always be a part of our family. I think it’s of the utmost importance that everyone is supported through their grief, and that they know that others have also gone through it and are here to listen and help.

I have had experiences with ectopic pregnancies and miscarriage and have yet to be blessed with my rainbow child. I understand that the journey to parenthood is not always a smooth one. I had very little support throughout my experiences and have always wanted to somehow make a change so that no-one else is forced to go through this traumatic experience alone. Thanks to Pink Elephants I now have the chance to be a comforting ear for families going through miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

Pregnancy loss is devastating, perplexing and unfair. I know these emotions all too well as I have experienced them with my three losses. I never reached out for help with my first two losses as I was comforted by the statistics that “1 in 4 women experience miscarriage”, “It is common” and “I’m young – I will have another”. Yet it was my third loss that almost broke me. I felt like a failure and questioned my womanhood. However navigating my way through the grief has brought back inner peace and harmony within myself. I hope to do the same for others who are on their path of healing after loss, by providing support as a Peer Support Ambassador.

Having experienced 4 miscarriages between 13 and 19 weeks as well as a still birth, I was fortunate enough to be blessed with rainbow children. At the time, I lived in a rural area with little support from family and friends. I felt lonely and very isolated following my pregnancy loss. As a Peer Support Ambassador, I am able to support women and help them through their grief. I understand the importance of a listening ear and being able to acknowledge the loss.
