Niamh Hope Anne was born at 4:12am, 30/06/2009, 8lb 13oz. Full term.

Unfortunately no heartbeat was detected during a fast and furious 4-hour labour and she was delivered with the cord tightly wound round her neck.
Niamh's heart never started.

This is our second daughter following 2 miscarriages earlier this year.

She was perfectly formed and looked just like her sister did as a newborn.

We held her for hours

We are lost in grief but delighted to have Mae (2.5)to keep us going.

You are right Lunatic and I have to be there as dd3 will start the nursery class the same day, not sure how it will be seeing the reception class line up knowing Niamh should have been with them. Will book the day off work just incase I end up a soggy mess.

Glad to hear the Pnd has abated, they watched me like hawks with their mood chart after our little star was born.

woollyjo, thank you so much for your kind words. It means such a lot from someone who has been there, much as I wish none of us had had to walk this path. I will keep your words close to my heart as we await this little one. Much love to you, whiteandyellow, babyh and everyone else who knows this pain.

thinking of you, when are you due? Its such a long road this time last year I was still in hospital. I miss my beautiful boy every day......I remember picturing how gorgeous the July weather would be and how I would proudly walk my new baby in the pushchair....instead he got snatched away. How cruel life can be, funny it ended up raining none stop and look at the weather today just like I pictured it tis time last year......if only!!
Thinking of you xxxxxx

Wooly what is the book your friend recommended to you please?

You ladies are so brave and I am so pleased that you will all have your rainbow babies.

Still early days for me I hope I don't have to wait too long for my rainbow baby.
