Being able to support other women going through miscarriage and/or infertility has always been at the heart of what I have wanted to achieve through Pink Elephants. Having suffered 6 miscarriages and two years of IVF, I believe I can truly empathise with and understand what other women are going through. Being able to pour your heart out to someone who will listen without judgement is such an important part of the grieving process. To be able to vent, to cry, to be irrational, sad, angry and frustrated – with someone who gets it.

It took my husband and I six years to become pregnant with our first baby, only to lose our beautiful child at 11 weeks. We fell pregnant a second time a few months later… only to devastatingly lose that precious and desperately wanted baby at 19 weeks. Five years later we embarked on IVF and are now the extremely grateful and proud parents of a beautiful, kind, funny and cheeky daughter. At the time of these heartbreaking losses I felt very isolated. People didn’t understand what I was going through. It wasn’t their fault. They just hadn’t experienced it. And that is why I am so glad that I can be here for you and your family.

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.

My first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage at 15 weeks. I had only just started telling everyone and was not expecting this loss, it was a very confusing and lonely time as there was no support back then. When I read in my local paper about the Pink Elephants Support Group my first thought was I wish this was around when I needed it and what a great idea – I want to help!
