Lots of what you've seen posted here so far talks about pregnancy and infant loss from a mother’s perspective. Mothers carry babies, mothers birth babies, mothers love babies, mothers lose babies, mothers grieve babies.
And dads do too.
But a father’s grief is often ignored, thrown under the rug. He may set aside his grief to care for his wife. He may not know how to express the pain he feels at the loss of his baby. Do any of us?
If you know a dad who lost a baby, please consider his grief too. Think of him when you send food. Think of him when you give hugs. Think of him when you lend a listening ear. And keep him in your heart.
To hear dads talk about their grief after the loss of a baby, we invite you to watch one of the videos we viewed during our Film Night & Panel Discussion, "When the Storm Hits" (in French, subtitled in English).
Please share, this video may help a dad you know too.
