International Bereaved Mother's Day always falls on the first Sunday in May and is observed by acknowledging those women who have experienced the loss of a baby or child. Including women who cannot conceive.
Today is about us. The ones who would normally say nothing, who bury our losses and speak to our sleeping babies in the quietness of our minds, in hushed tones. Each one of us grieving mothers deserves a day of recognition, we wish to say our baby’s names out loud, to let off balloons and lay flowers and talk openly about the beautiful babies we carried.
Our baby’s may not be here now, but they were here once. We gave birth to them, we held them, we wrapped them up in shawls and dressed them in baby grows, we kissed them, we checked they had 5 fingers and 5 toes when they were born, we smelt them, we cried for them, we buried them. Our homes are forever more so empty without them, they rest in peace within our broken hearts.
If you lost a baby or a child, be kind to yourself today, speak about them. Get the photos and memory boxes out, feel your baby’s spirit close by.
If someone you know lost a child and is silent, send them love, phone say hello, talk about their baby.
This is more common than people think. Many women of every age within every generation are grieving and suffering.
Mothers of this world unite.
