Had Cacia not been stillborn, had she been born at the right time, had she been here Cacia would be turning one year old this month. The same month of SAND awareness. Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity have taken this month to be about raising awareness for all the families that have miscarried, borne sleeping babies, families that never took their baby home, never held their baby, never met their baby. For all the babies and families that forever have a missing space. This month is about taking away the taboo of child loss, for all it’s unfortunate causes; miscarriage, stillbirth, neo-natal death. Break the silence.
I am mother to two girls. One born screaming, one born in silence.
