June 4th 2014
this is the day our lives changed forever, our baby boy George was born sleeping at 22+5 days old. Unknown to us my waters had slowly gone and infection had set in and brought on early labour. We were told as we was admitted to hospital that I was being over sensitive, I knew what was happening, u just do! So after 10 hours of labour, being told, “u know the rules around early labour” which I didn’t, thinking am I in wrong hospital for him? We gave birth at 16.40.
We spent a couple of hours with our boy myself, my partner and my mum, who were my rocks that day, I was unsure weather I wanted this time with him, but forever grateful we did. His eyes not yet open, but a build of a tiny muscle man, our beautiful George.
We had a priest come to our room to bless him, and then he was gone.
we left the hospital early the next day where we walked through the busy maternity ward, filled with happiness and labour filled sounds. We had no baby to leave with.....
we will never forget that day but unfortunately the world will as he is not recognised as a living soul, no birth certificate or death! No footprint on earth at all, except in our world.
This has got to change, I gave physical birth to a baby boy and now no trace
