The loss of a child during pregnancy or in the postpartum is an unspeakably difficult event that can trigger a range of responses. For some, there is an urge to conceive again as soon as possible. But how do you know when you are ready to start trying again? https://www.babble.com/pregnancy/conceive-after-stillbirth/
While my husband and I were waiting at the hospital for our stillborn daughter, Beatrice, to be born, I turned to my husband. “I want to try again soon,” I sobbed. He nodded through his tears. I was so relieved that he, too, felt that only another baby could fill the emptiness after the death of our daughter. It was never a question of replacing Beatrice—just of fulfilling the dream we had of a little brother or sister for our other child.
