As you’ll notice, I’ve not blogged for some time. Previously, I largely blogged about my weight-loss journey (I’ll let you know if I ever find the right route for this), and the name of the blog reflected the gender-balance at weight-loss groups.
I’ll likely blog about this again in the future, but now I want to write about something else in my life – my recent experiences of maternity services. These blogs will be written through the eyes of a grieving father, but I hope that I can find some light amongst the darkness. The name still feels fitting given the gender-split of staffing within the amazing maternity services we experienced.
I hope you will find the blogs interesting, and possibly insightful, if you are going through similar circumstances. If you are, I am so incredibly sorry for your pain and that you’ve stumbled upon my thoughts for this reason.
However, my primary reason for writing these blogs is to record my own thoughts, observations and memories, as a record, which I hope I will find cathartic.
This blog is, as are all that will follow, in loving memory of my daughter Tilly, who was born and left us on Saturday 26 May 2018.
