There are words that have broken my heart: “I’m so sorry”
“There is no heartbeat”
“Would you like your baby to be buried or cremated?”.
There are words that have terrified me:
“You will have to deliver this baby naturally”
“Massive Perivillous Fibrin Deposition”
“Significant recurrence rate”
“No known treatment”.
There are words that have angered me:
“It wasn’t meant to be”
“She is in a better place”
“Everything happens for a reason”.
However there are also words that have soothed and comforted me. I love this poem by Mary Oliver. I guess I’m still working on the third part.
