Forgive me another personal post this week – this is to remember my son Jamie who was born 7 years ago today and died three days later.
His time with us was brief but the impact on our lives will last forever – the pain and grief of missing him is never far away but the love for him has made me a better mother, a better practitioner and a better person.
The memories of his pregnancy and birth will always be with me and when I close my eyes I can feel his skin, his hair and I can smell his newborness. I will forever remember kissing him and washing him and staring into his eyes for the last time. He was a beautiful, precious little baby who was too poorly to stay with us but I will be forever grateful that he could stay long enough to meet his family.
