Baby Loss Blog & Story

Hi, my son Marty died last June. I went into very unexpected early labour while I was on holiday in France. Marty was with us for one week before we had to take the decision to remove his support. When I got home I decided to write and share Marty’s story, and a blog about all of my experiences and feelings in the months that have followed. Writing has really helped me, and I hope that sharing it is helping others too. My website is called Marty Matters, or I have an Instagram page @marty.matters

Thank you :heart:
