LISTEN ON ITUNES
Listen in as I chat with Laura Moore — a mama who endured the heartbreaking journey of knowing the baby she carried would most likely not live more than a few hours, days at the most, after birth.
Laura’s son Hudson was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 and in this episode she shares honestly about her pregnancy, what it was like to prepare for his birth and the tangible ways she did so, how she celebrated his life while he was alive and why maternity photos were incredibly meaningful to her.
Laura talks very specifically about the resources that were most helpful to her as she planned for Hudson’s birth (and I have linked to those below) as well as how she went about planning a funeral for her son and the role her friends and family played in that process. Laura also spends some time recounting the day her son was born and marvels at what a beautiful day that was.
If you or someone you love is walking the journey of carrying a baby that will not live beyond birth — this episode is both practically helpful and honestly hopeful. I pray that no matter what brought you here today, this episode would serve as a reminder that you are never, ever alone in this journey and that you are more loved than you could ever imagine.
