Content Warning: Pregnancy loss, loss of baby

They say time heals all wounds, but I can say from experiences that it is not always the case. It's been over eight years since I lost a part of me and despite spending many hours in grief counseling, I haven't quite gotten over the loss of my precious baby girl. I still remember everything clear as day. My husband was beside me as we stared at the droplets of water slowly running down the window against a gloomy background. But even the rainy climate could not dampen my spirits because I was about to welcome our daughter into the world. It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, even though I couldn't stop thinking about the complications that had suddenly emerged.

My doctor had hooked me onto many machines after checking my vitals. A bunch of tests had been ordered by her "just to cover our bases," she said. Positive thinking was one of the few lessons that I had picked up during my Lamaze classes and they came quite handy that day. I kept telling myself that everything was fine but deep within I could tell a storm was about to sweep away all my happiness. Moments later I was told that there were some complications with my pregnancy and that I immediately needed to be wheeled into surgery for an emergency C-section.
