I was 26, married for four years.
My husband and I decided that it was time to start a family, and we got pregnant with our first child!
Everything in the pregnancy progressed smoothly and normally just like in the textbooks, and we were getting ready to meet our little girl.
Then, when I was 36 weeks pregnant, everything collapsed.
Alexa: A Mother’s Journey of Love, Loss and Hope is a very personal book.
Written as journal entries, this book tells of my grieving – and healing – journey after losing my first baby to stillbirth.
You can read the story behind this book here and here.
