I’m so sorry that you have lost your beautiful son. It’s a pain like no other.

I lost my son as a 30 year old adult so I’m not best placed to offer you any advice on your particular set of circumstances.

Can your GP recommend some help? Keep posting here as there are so many people that will know more than me about losing a baby.

Sending you warm hugs

Thankyou for your reply, I’ve tried talking to the gp tried medication but no medication will get the pain away, I’ve read some heartbreaking stories on here, when my partner found our son Christopher when he got sent to hospital and got told he was passed on arrival was the most heartbreaking feeling I’ve ever experienced, and when he went for his autopsy they took my sons brain without telling me they were going to until afterwards so we’ve had his funeral last month and just taking everyday as it comes in baby steps but still struggling I feel comtable going to visit his grave everyday to put blue flowers or roses down for him, but I still feel down like I have no strength left in me.
