Over the past year and a half, I have spoken to so many wonderful people on the road to becoming parents. To say the last few months have been very emotional for Twin Daddy and I is an understatement. We started IVF treatment in April 2011 and since then we have been in and out of fertility clinics, had numerous tests and operations between us and, out of it all, came our beautiful twin girls.
The first 27 days of their lives were spent in hospital. At first, they were confined to incubators with little hatches you could open to touch them. Then they moved into open incubators. This meant we could touch them, stroke them and hold their hands for as long as we wanted.
We were lucky that our journey was successful and that we were able to bring our girls home. Many other people are not so lucky.
Zoe and Andy over at Saying Goodbye have personally suffered the loss of five babies. They created the Saying Goodbye organisation in honour of their babies, as they wanted to find a way to formally remember them.
As a couple they have since been blessed with two little girls, aged 3 years and 9 months. Both Zoe and Andy have been providing support for people who have gone through the trauma of losing a child for many years. Saying Goodbye provide services which give people the opportunity to pay tribute to their babies.
