Here are photos of my while I was VERY pregnant with our first child. My due date was Feb. 23 2007. I went into labor while I was 41 weeks pregnant at home, well my labor did not continue at home. I delivered our baby Birdie via emergency c-section, and Birdie was stillborn.

“An angel in the Book of Life wrote down your Birdie’s birth. Then whispered as she closed the book, “Too beautiful for earth.”
Such beautiful pictures – I’m so sorry for your loss.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Birdie was a beautiful little angel.
I am so sorry…:(
I am so so sorry for your loss. Many thanks for posting your story and pictures they are truley beautiful! xxx
I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I will pray for you that you will find comfort and strength. We don’t know why things like this happen, and it probably won’t ever make sense to you this side of heaven. But please know that God is in control even when life feels so sad and out of control. He will help you through this.
Bless you and your partner for sharing your story. I am so sorry for your loss.
I came to this site a few months ago, while pregnant with my first child, and remember feeling so sad over your loss. I just lost that child – my darling boy, Soren, after 30 weeks, 5 days, and now I realize that any sadness I felt was nothing compared to what you went through, and what I am going through now. Your Birdie is beautiful, and the love you both have for her is so beautifully plain across your faces. Take care…
I started crying as soon as I saw the picture of you holding her. I can’t imagine the pain you must have felt. I am so sorry, I hope you have found comfort and peace.
your baby is beatiful and makes me cry to think of your heartache, i am so deeply sorry….a x&o from me
I am so sorry for your loss and your heartache. Thank you for sharing your story.
i am so sorry! i lost my baby in january of this year as well after 41 weeks and a failed homebirth. i too have a scar and nothing to show for it. please know you are not alone.
Just wanted to say how beautiful little Birdie is, I had tears in my eyes reading your post and viewing your photos. I am honoured that you allowed us into your special time with your little girl
What beautiful pictures. Your Birdie is beautiful. I’m sure her flight to Heaven was easier with your love under her wings.
So sorry for your loss. Having had a stillbirth myself i know its hard (i lost my son a couple of weeks b4 he was to be born) at times it feels like u cant go on. But our motherly instinct kicks in and we know that our babies are happy in heaven….Ur pics are beautiful. Im sure she is in heaven lookn out for both of you, takin care of you and loving u every second that goes by.
Oh mama & papa,
My heart breaks for you both. O wonder if you are still reading these comments, if you keep coming back to fill your hearts up a little more when they are empty. I showed my husband your post and photos and our hearts break , our love and empathy goes out to you both. We had an unnassisted home birth as we are over an hour from the hospital, well, i was scared of what could go wrong. Thankfully nothing did but my little one was very slow to get going. Those moments take an eternity are completely surreal and stay in your heart and memory forever. Hold onto the beautiful memories of your beautiful little Birdie in your belly and heart, know that she touched you both so deeply that you have explored every depth of emotion and have grown and eveloved in your souls. Your little Angel was a magical little spirit that came to you to teach you about love….. I hope you have loving understanding family and friends to help you both
xx Love to you both and your beutiful perfect little spirit girl xx
I just wanted to say how beautiful your photos are. My heart was breaking for you both in the photo of you with your precious daughter Birdie. xx
