About this work
We Lost Our Baby is the true story of a young couple who. after the initial excitement of discovering a new pregnancy, faced the heartache of losing their baby. On top of the trauma of a miscarriage, they also had to deal with insensitive and sometimes rude doctors and nurses, outdated hospital policies, and a shocking lack of empathy and understanding during the worst times of this tragedy. Angry and confused, they went looking for answers. They found none. What followed was an awkward few months where they could not grieve together and their relationship was severely strained. This beautifully written, poignant story, created with the hope of helping other couples facing similar difficulties, deals with an issue that is too rarely acknowledged or openly discussed, with complete and heart-rending honesty.
