My name is Sethline, and I just lost my daughter, born at 30 weeks, preterm. I do not know how to handle my grieve and support my husband through his. She was our first child, due to be born in August.
I was experiencing mild contractions on May, 27th and I checked myself into a hospital, the scan showed no danger and her heartbeat was fine, but I was detained and at around 7pm, I went into labour, my sweet angel came almost immediately after my water broke. She was rushed to the NICU, where she was kept under observation and fighting to stay with me, and I did everything right by her to keep her with me. But it didn’t work, she left me on 5th June at around 12am.
I stood by her side as she took her last breath. I held her in my arms till I gave her away to be buried by the hospital.
I can’t breathe, and I can’t deal. When I close my eyes all I have are images of her.
Everyone says don’t cry, and I am forced to pretend to be ok, just after the death of my baby. But I know i may never be over it.
