Trigger warning: Miscarriage and infant death

Imagine the feeling of giving birth to your baby after several miscarriages. 
Only for him to become critically ill in the hours and days following his birth, and eventually dying in your arms.

In this episode of The Tough Mothers Podcast Amelia Davatzis shares her story of how her firstborn, Alexander, was born with duodenal atresia – a condition where the first part of the bowel does not develop properly. And how this usually simple, lifesaving procedure was anything but for Alexander.

I am so grateful Amelia has shared her experience, even though it is very sad for her, and hard for us to hear. But we need to talk about everything in motherhood. Even the tough stuff.
ESPECIALLY the tough stuff. We cannot sweep devastation in motherhood under the rug.
