Coping

Ive recently lost my baby daughter after going into labour prematurely few months back, she passed away very shortly after birth. I find it hard that she didnt survive considering her little heart beat was so healthy when she was inside of me. No results yet from hospital investigation or post mortem. How do people cope losing loved ones/children/baby? Im back to work after couple of months off, ive now finished bereavement counselling. Just feel numb all the time recently.

Sending lots of love.
Just take it hour by hour , day by day, I found the brain fog crippling but it does lift. And it’s so normal to feel numb. I felt numb for about a year after my daughter died when she was a young adult. She was 22.
I found it helpful to talk about it to anyone who d listen.
Just know that you will get through it.
