Some things must be experienced to be understood, which is why the connection between those who have lost babies is so visceral and important.
In Australia, one in four confirmed pregnancies ends in miscarriage and many more woman miscarry without ever knowing they were pregnant.
Every year, one in 120 births will be a stillbirth or result in a newborn death.
Behind these statistics are the woman who are often silently dealing with their grief as it comes in waves, overwhelming them and pushing them under, before lifting them up again and giving them just a little glimmer of hope.
When a woman and her partner experience a pregnancy loss they often don't know who to turn to for support and all they really want to do is connect with other people who are experiencing the same immense grief.
They need to know they're not alone and they need to know there's hope.
That's why Mamamia created the Never Forgotten community – to build a place for those people to share their pain, offer support and discover a way to move forward, when even a smile seems impossible. Because while these babies may leave us, they will never be forgotten. Especially when their stories are shared.
