Losing My Son to Stillbirth Opened My Eyes to a Community I Didn’t Know I Had
I was 24 weeks and 6 days pregnant when I heard the words that no parent ever wants to hear: "I'm sorry, there's no heartbeat." I'd known something was wrong, deep down, but hadn't wanted to entertain any ideas of what it might be. When the doctor couldn't find a heartbeat using the fetal doppler, we went in for an emergency ultrasound. And there we saw our son's tiny body, completely still.
