How TLC Makes a Difference
Messages from Families
We would like to share with you some beautiful moving messages from families touched by the program
I just finished reading my resource pack. Thank you so very much for sending it. I wish I had of had it three weeks ago, when Tyler was born, and died. It would have been so very helpful. It has answered questions for me though, and I will be keeping it for future reference.
I would love to be able to offer our families that suffer the loss of a child one of your wonderful resources packs. the current resources information we have is up to date but very impersonal compared to your information.
Congratulations on the resource pack. They are amazing there is nothing like this. Would it be possible to have some more please.
Your work really does make a difference. I never thought that a bear would be something I would cling to so much when I got home from hospital. It certainly made me realize that I was not alone.
Having seen your segment on Sunrise this morning I felt compelled to contact your organisation and say "thank you" for the work you are doing.
I'm 54 years old but when I was 18 I too left hospital without my baby. I've just witnessed on the Sunrise show a young couple talking of their loss and your foundation. I only wish that there had been someone apart from family that I could have turned to. I have cried silently to myself every day for the loss of my son. I'll NEVER get over losing my baby and the experience I had in doing so. I'm so happy that woman now have someone who care and they can contact to help get through this traumatic experience and hospitals have changed their views. Hopefully these woman wont suffer the rest of their lives grieving for the baby as I have. I think of you often Trudi and although I don't keep in touch I still tell people about this wonderful person on the other end of the phone who actually 'got me' at a time I didn't think anyone could. So thanks.
One of the midwives handed me a teddy bear. With this teddy bear came a note that reminded me of how I was not alone. It reminded me that someone else somewhere has also lost a child. It gave us some comfort because till then we felt so alienated and thought this is so unexpected and only happens in movies or books. Thank you so much for setting this club up. It has given me great comfort in my darkest hours.
The program has provided valued information and reiterates the fact that you are not alone in your grief - you don't realise how many parents lose their children until you unfortunately experience it for yourself
The difference you have made in our grieving process has been amazing. I take great comfort knowing that there are many families who know the pain we feel, although at the time it is so difficult to imagine anyone else ever having to go through this.
Dear Trudi, I can't thank you enough for the response to my email. I really appreciated what you said and for me, yes it was helpful to get some of my thoughts out. It kind of is a good feeling to get them 'written down'. Thanks so muc for your thoughts too - it is nice to hear that is our situation it is normal to be feeling the way i am and struggle with the things i do. Each day does feel a little easier at times - but i feel that it also catches you when you least expect it to and that's probably the hardest thing.
Hello Trudi, I have been looking on the website for the last couple of weeks and it has been quite helpful and I wanted to say thankyou. It has been comforting knowing that I am not the only one who has been through this horrible experience. I am a person who loves being informed and finding out as much information as possible. So I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of some reading material on Stillbirth and subsequent pregnancies. There does not seem to be much I can get my hands on. I want to thank you again as this website has been extremely helpful for me during my time of grief.
I found great comfort in being there. Listening to other stories and being able to relate emotionally really helped me and is helping me through this journey. For myself I would love to have these meetings more regularly. I must admit I was nervous about coming initially but when I was greeted with open arms, I felt like I belonged and was no longer alone in my grief.
It has been the worst time in my life, however viewing your page and reading the stories has been a great comfort. It's true that you feel so alone, and a horror and a relief to realise that you are not. Thank you for being there.
I have found a place where I dont feel alone and feel that I am understood because through this website we all who have lost a little one can share our experiences and know we are not alone
Without this bear I don't think I would ever have made it out the doors of that hospital. keep up the wonderful work, I hope to offer my support in the weeks and years ahead.
It was very hard to leave the hospital with out our baby, even though it was early days it was still hard . But thanks too the program it helped a lot. Thanks for the support
Your site has been a great comfort to me as we are from a small country town and have limited resoures to help.
TLhe program has been a comfort to me over the last year. I quite often come to the site - reading other people's stories has helped me
