This post is dedicated to the mothers who have lost their child before the baby could even have a glimpse of the wonderful world waiting for them.
It was heartbreaking to receive a message from one of our clients last year. She sent the message thru our Client Testimonial section of the website. The message was something unexpected considering what our devoted client experienced last year.
No amount of ‘We’re sorry to hear about that’ could ease the pain in a mother’s heart…..
Client Testimonial (January 14, 2015)
Less than a year ago, I went to UC Baby to have an experience that all new mothers are longing for with their first baby; to see ur baby move and kick inside you all in 3D (closest u can get to real life). I had a great experience, and the technician was very nice.
After I left, the ultrasound technician passed my ultrasounds to the Doctor that owns UC Baby because she saw something abnormal. This abnormality was something in the baby’s intestine. The Doctor that own UC Baby then tried to contact my OB/GYN but he was out of town. After trying to get a hold of him a few times, she also tried to call me several times (but I was also out of town).
I was impressed with the effort they did to get a hold of us. They didn’t just call once, but they called several times throughout a span of 1 week because they cared enough to tell me to follow up with my Doctor and to monitor the baby’s intestine.
Unfortunately, my baby didn’t make it. But I still greatly appreciate the efforts that were done by all the workers at UC Baby and for going that extra step. Thank you.
Pregnancy is one of life’s blessing. For those of us who choose to experience it, some have it easy, while others have to be a little more careful with their condition. There are those who could not conceive at all. And there are those who could not carry their child to full term.
Others may say, the void of loss is less because they never had the baby long enough. But to a MOTHER, a child is HER child, no matter the length of time spent. A mother will continue to love a child she once had, as much as she loves her other children. There is a certain bond that only a mother would feel. It is a bond with someone who was once a part of her.
