Support from others is one of the most important factors helping bereaved parents to cope and has a major impact on how they experience returning to work, and to their lives, after pregnancy loss. Going back to work after losing a baby can be a welcome return to routine for some, and a terrifying prospect for others. Take time to work out what’s best for you. A mother is entitled to take her maternity leave in full after a stillbirth.

If you have a good relationship, you might Promise confidentiality: You already know you can’t share personal information with other employees, but it’s a good. Having spent the weeks that should have been maternity or paternity leave coping with the sorrow of not holding our baby in our arms, we have to maneuver our way back into a weak imitation of our former selves, at least sufficiently enough to make it through a day of work.

Here is a list of suggestions for making that process a little easier. In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.

When you go back to work, expect ups and downs as you become more adept at managing multiple demands. These tips can help: Get organized. Make a daily to-do list.

You might divide the list into tasks for work and tasks for home, or tasks for you and tasks for your partner. Identify what you need to do, what can wait — and what you can skip.

As I myself wrote in a 2017 article for the public finance think tank OMFIF, ‘the message to our daughters is clear, if sad: take as little time off when you have a baby—and when you go back, assuming your job is still there, avoid taking on part-time roles’.

  • Hey Saam… Thank you for this video❤️❤️❤️��… I had a heterotopic pregnancy 4 weeks ago. I lost both my pregnancies, first my ectopic pregnancy was operated on, then a couple of days later I had an incomplete miscarriage then had to go to theater again for a d&c….. Such a traumatic and painful experience, yah so I went back to work last week (different department to the one I was in before everything )… I felt anxious and completely out of place, cause I hadn’t been there for 3 weeks and the worse part is that I hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant yet and no one knew why I was away for that period of time. Today I have to go back to working in the same department I was before everything happened… So Im feeling nervous, hence the search for videos relating to this…. I was feeling alone but having watched your video I have a renewed sense of hope and I know I’m going to be OK… Thank you for sharing your story… God bless you ����❤️

  • God bless you!!!! Continue to look forward and be happy with whatever happens ❤️❤️
    You are strong you are a fighter & god will bless you with much more ������

  • I literally went back to work only a week after having a D&C after my missed miscarriage.

    I just needed to feel some kind of “normal” and have something to do to keep my mind busy.

    ��

  • I went back to work one week after losing my little Isaac, the day after his burial actually. It’s been 2 months and I cannot seem to concentrate at all. Watching your video has made me realize I made a very poor decision in returning to work so quickly. I’ve tried to avoid the grieving process but it just doesn’t work that way. I’m sending you a huge hug and thanks for sharing your journey.

  • That’s the reality of grieving some days are good and others are bad and you just learn to live a new normal in time every one is very different.
    ��

  • I truly enjoy your channel. Thanks for sharing your time and experience through this journey… Have fun with your little princess:)

  • I have a family member who did the 8 minute sleep method, it worked really well for them & their daughter is now 2 and sleeps throughout the night and is still a mamas girl. ♥️ ps. Rey is so cute ��

  • Hey I don’t know how I made it to your channel but I’ve watched all your videos when I was younger I seen my mom goes through two miscarriages at about 24 weeks and it’s been the most painful things. I pray you find peace in your heart and just know that Braxton is in heaven waiting for you very anxiously so yes we will all hug our babies that were taken too soon because I’m sure he is up there playing with my little brothers that I very much miss
    Sending much love to you

  • Parenthood is looking well on you. You look beautiful and Rey is beautiful too. I just can’t believe it’s been a month already time is flying by. Have a great evening.����

  • I’m not a mom or anythingI’m a teenager. I randomly stumbled upon your channel and am going through a tough time right now. Your situation is completely different and much harder emotionally then mine, but your strength inspires me. It inspires me to keep going when I feel like I can’t. Thank you. Braxton is watching from above <3

  • You are so open and honest! Remember it’s not your place to make others feel comfortable. You do what feels best for YOU! Love you and you amazing videos
    Braxton will always be with so many of us forever because of how you have made us fall in love with him! ��

  • What do u do for work? It would be really hard to go back to work and deal with all the questions from people. Wish u all the best xxx

  • Death sucks. This year though it is only a parent I lost my mom in January. She had her final earthly birthday Jan 1 2019 on a respirator, and died 14 days later. Mom had lost 3 boys before I came along and I was her first born survivor. Now she’s also gone. My love and prayers are with you. God bless you and comfort you as He has me. Love from Canada ����������������������

  • Felly, you are a strong and beautiful woman. I am catching up on your videos and you are to be admired. My heart aches for you. Much love to you, always Braxton’s Mom.❤

  • I had miscarriage exactly two weeks ago with my 8 week old baby. Before, I never understood the pain of losing a baby even if I knew people that had miscarriages.. Until it happened to me. The pain is unbearable. I still cry almost everyday thinking about that heartbreaking day ever of my life. The emotions after the doctor have told us that my baby doesn’t have a heartbeat anymore was the worst news I have ever heard. Even if we just heard his/her heartbeat on 2 sonogram appointments (a week and a day) before the miscarriage. Me and my fiance were lucky enough to have a good support system. We were allowed to take some time off from work. Families, friends and co-workers constantly checking on us.

    I am scheduled to come back to work on Monday and I don’t know what to do or to expect. I don’t know how will I respond to some co-workers if they ask me what exactly happened or how am I coping up etc. I don’t want to breakdown and cry in front of them and feel bad for me. This video is very helpful on how to prepare and compose my self when I go back to work.

    I may not exactly felt your pain after your loss with baby Braxton, but I understand how hard it was for you and your family. I admire you for sharing your story and will continue to pray for you.

    Our angel babies will be forever in our hearts, watching over us. ����♥️

  • So nice to hear that u had tje support you needed to have after, cause when i went to work after my stillborn everyvody would tell me be happy he is taken cause my baby Jamayro had down syndrome like it was a good thing. I wish u and your family all the strength cause the pain and missing are real. ❤️��

  • i almost never comment on videos but i’ve felt the pain of losing a child. i just wanted to say you’re so strong and we’re all rooting for you, your comments are filled with such hope and love for you. when i lost my baby i felt my heart break in a way i never thought it could, the pain never truly goes away but 4 months ago i gave birth to my happy, healthy little girl. nothing will ever erase the pain of losing your first child, but you will love again ❤️

  • Always feel proud of yourself. You are pulling yourself through something unbearable. Prayers for you. You are never going to be the same person again, you’re a different person now. Your strength and bravery to share your story is beautiful.

  • Felly You are such an amazing young lady!!! My heart breaks for you Doll!!! I admire your strength and sharing your story… I’m praying for you ❤️

  • The hurt in your eyes is truly heartbreaking. I hope that this doesn’t come off as insensitive to your loss, but do you think that you will try again? I miscarried my first, I commented about it on your still birth story video. I know it probably doesn’t feel like it now, but I can see that you have so much love in your heart and I’m hoping you will try again because your live child will make the pain more bearable. You never forget the loss, but it eases a bit over time. All of our babies are watching over us and we will be reunited one day. A really beautiful concept about death is from Thich Nhat Hanh it’s called It’s Like A Cloud Up In the Sky.

  • You are so amazing and my ignorance kept me be totally away from a member of my extended family when their baby daughter’s heart stopped at 24 weeks gestation. I couldn’t even put a single word for them:( to show support.
    I didn’t know if it was ok to say anything for the fear of saying the totally wrong thing. They didn’t speak about it so this made it even more confusing for the rest of us around them so thank you so much for allowing us to learn about this hard reality that some parents are forced to find them selves facing and, this just opens up a very difficult topic in a very sensible way because no one is assured 100% that all will go well.

  • Ugh this is my worst nightmare especially all the ‘what ifs?’. You are very strong. He will always be with you in spirit and protect you forever. One day you will make him a big brother

  • Have you looked into Reborn Dolls? You can basically get the looks and feel of sweet baby Braxton in a doll form. I’ve heard they’re really helpful for mothers of stillborns, just to have the feel and the look of your angel.

  • You are so strong. Baby Braxton is looking down at you and proud of how strong your being. It’s totally okay to be sad. You are amazing. Keep it up. Braxton is so proud I know it ��

  • I found your channel last night and have watched so many videos and subscribed already. I love you so much as a person and your channel but it’s just as heartbreaking also. I can’t imagine your pain and the loss of loosing a baby or child. I could never imagine loosing either of my girls at any stage of life. You’re such a beautiful Mumma ❤❤

  • im sorry about your loss mama. i know exactly how you are feeling i lost my son alexander at 7 months in june 2018. i remember when i went back to work it was so hard because people kept asking me questions and stuff i ended up leaving my job because i couldnt bare the pain. but i just want you to know your time will come to have children in the future. i found out on thanksgiving i was pregnant again but with twins! i feel like god knew the pain i had gone thru and just decided to bless me 2× more. ive had the worst anxiety this pregnancy but i really am trying to have faith everything will be okay.

  • Not trying to lecture you. Crying out method just shouldn’t really be applied until they’re 5 months old. You do what feels right for you though. Takingcarababies on Instagram is amazing and super helpful for sleeptraining

  • I am trying to live through a similar experience and watching your videos is helping so much. Thank you for helping me get through this ��

  • I’m so sorry for your loss. ❤️❤️ my first daughter died 7 years ago 2 days after she was born due to a placenta rupture. Going back to work was sooo hard. Everyday I would come home crying. But everyday it was less each time. I also didn’t get my confidence back until my 4th pregnancy. So many things come with grief and you really don’t know how your emotions will arise. Praying for you and your husband. I promise things will get better. It sounds so cliche but it’s true. ����

  • You are such a strong and courageous person. Braxton is DEFINITELY proud of his mommy. He is in Heaven with God and will see you again one day.

  • Love, you don’t need to accept what happened to Braxton. That is something impossible for a Mother to do. All you can do is learn to live everyday with the pain. The pain won’t be this strong forever, you will be able to think of him without crying and instead smile. Grief is a process. Prayers to you and your family and baby Braxton. ❤️

  • My mother carried my sister to full term. She almost died and My sister did not make it. She had 3 children 3 years apart when she got pregnant with my sister. She blamed herself because she was stressed to be pregnant so soon after her third child. I know everything happens for a reason and I would not be here today if my older sister did not pass. But seeing your pain and knowing my mothers pain, I feel guilty my sister passed and I only came to be because of it. You are so brave sharing your loss to try to help others. You are amazing and so strong! Thank you!!

  • I wish I had the proper
    Words to tell you everything’s going to be okay but it’s really something that will always live with you. After loosing my daughter 9 years ago I can tell you that it’s a pain that never left my heart, I just learned to live with the heartbreak. I believe a piece of me died that September 18. I will always remember her smell,her beautiful face, and her adorable smile. My daughter was only 3 months old and died of a terminal brain condition. I carried my daughter for 9months, I was constantly in the hospital refused the abortions the doctors offered me many times saying I could die in the process of birth,having her,falling in love with her just to loose her.??It hurts!until this day it fuckin hurts!but you know what I’m okay,I’ve lived thru it and you can too! Give yourself time to heal! Cry,scream,stay in bed for as long as you need but when you are done get back up and do everything in dedication to your son! You are not alone. Sending you hugs and wishing you nothing but the best may your angel Rest In Peace ❤️

  • Hi, I recently lost my baby at 20 weeks and 5 days, it’s so painful to know that my baby is not here anymore, I don’t know what happened, I’m waiting to go back to the doctor which will be this 01/31/2020 at that time they will have all the blood work and placenta pathology in order to find out what happened, I’m 39 years old, I’m so worry that I won’t be able to get pregnant again, I know I have to be positive, but all this negative things are in my mind. I’m work as a nanny and feel that guilty that I couldn’t do anything to protect my baby, this is so devastating. I want to ask you how long it took you to get pregnant again and if you did it naturally or you use any other form in order to get pregnant again. I miss my baby a lot, I miss him in my belly. Hope you can read my text.

  • Thanks for making this video!! You are a strong woman and i will pray for you. I was watching a video about perfume and somehow saw your video about you unpacking your bag and tears just flooded. I didn’t have a stillbirth but I had to make a hard decision in my life to terminate my pregnancy when I was 4 months pregnant in 2015. I was told my baby had turners syndrome and it was the hardest decision wether to have the baby either way or don’t bring her into this world because she’s not going to live a normal life. I felt like it was a nightmare also besides my child’s father I really didn’t have anyone to talk to about it and was really sad. A year later i got pregnant not planning it, and I have a 2year baby girl. 3 children in total. 20 yr old 10 and 2. I think you are very courageous and I am happy and sad that I saw your video because it kinda helps me a lil bit. You seem like such a sweet person and i know your baby would’ve had the best mom ever. Hugs and lots of ��

  • We all still exist when we leave earth, just in different forms. He still exists! You will see him again one day. And he will send his sibling down to you guys. He left early because his little brother or sister had to come. <3 Sending you love and hope!

  • Awe I’m so sorry for you loss my mom had a bad Infection during her pregnancy and was rushed to a emergency c-section and got my little sister out born 1 pound they said she wouldn’t at the time I had another sister and we was slim on money so staying in the hospital (she was in the nicu) was hard it cost 74,000 like the first week of staying there not counting gas money because my dad was a cop so when she was rushed to the hospital he had to drive up to the hospital and going home for stuff etc she will be 3 this year. I am very surprised she lived but she still has a very rough time with being weak and small for her age she’s 2 and looks like she’s 8 months old or something I am very sorry about your loss hope everything goes well in the future ��

  • I love your videos, hearing about your days. It breaks my heart that God called Braxton home too soon. You are an amazing mother!!!

  • My husband and I have been trying almost 7 years. We lost 3 early on around 12 weeks. He knows about 1 of them. No one else but my doctor knows I even want another. When I told people about the 1st one people told me I should be grateful for the one I have like it totally negates the loss. The first one would have been due on my birthday. My husband has none of his own but he raises my 10 year old as his own. I even had people tell me it was God’s way of telling me I couldn’t handle a second child. Well I shouldn’t say people. The only people who knew about the 1st one was my Gram and an aunt so it was those people who made the comments. My husbands friends acted like he dodged a bullet by losing the baby so he never spoke of it again. 2nd one I told no one. Only the doctor who did the test knew. 3rd only a nurse knew. I didn’t tell my husband. Month after month has turned into years. Now I just pretend I’m not much of a kid person when in reality I’ve cried myself to sleep every night for 6+ years.

  • Oh hun you have been through a major trauma one that will revisit you when you least expect it. Give yourself time to recover. You are doing so well. Being able to talk about it the way you are is so important. One day at a time. These events show you who your real family and friends are. Our loss made the local newspaper and people did one of two things they either crossed the road and avoided me or total strangers would come up to me in the supermarket, say nothing but lay their hand on my arm and give it a squeeze. That meant the world to me. To not feel isolated in my pain. Every thought you are having resonates. Grief is definitely a process and it does hurt but you will move forward when you are ready. ��

  • My baby sister died 1995, she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus. I was 14 yrs old when she died after 24 hours my Mom gave birth to her. We were devastated.�� But it is comforting to think, we have an angel up there, who watches over, and pray for us. Your story is relatable. Braxton is your angel. Keep on praying for healing.��

  • I lost my son when I was 40 weeks 2days on 2/15/18. When I went back to work no one asked or talked about my loss and it still hurts even a year later no one reached out to me besides my manager. It was hard also because one of my co workers was pregnant at the same time and her her baby a month before I did. So they would ask her how her daughter was doing in front of me with no care knowing my son had passed away. I’m glad you had support its super hard when you dont have any at all.

  • Don’t worry Braxton is still in your heart he was not ready to become part of the real life world he will be back don’t worry ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • I’m a postpartum nurse, and every time we talk about bereavement, fetal demise and maternal death I lose it. I can’t even begin to imagine how you’re feeling. I’m sending many prayers, and love to your family!

  • I came across your video by chance, by accident. I am glad I did. I wanted to let you know… You are going to be ok. You will get through this. I promise! My Parker would be 16 this year! So hard to believe. I thought I would NEVER be ok again. The first year was tough. Then it started to get better.
    Listening to you talk, I can see myself through you. You are walking my exact road. You will get through this and you will be ok.
    I am here, if you ever need to chat! ❤️

  • With pain comes strength…… I am so proud of you for your courage and strength. I had a miscarriage back in 2015 and i cried watching your videos….. Since then i have had my 2 rainbow babies and still wonder what would he or she be like…. Everything will get better soon….. I admire you thank you so much for sharing….. We love you Braxton……

  • My sister’s second child was stillbirth, it’s been a little over two years and she still can’t stand looking at babies or hearing about them. She has been to therapy but it’s not working:( the father to her first child has full custody and won’t let her see her own child:( and I can see the same look in your eyes to my sisters eyes and it just breaks my heart�� prayers to you❤️

  • I hope you can find peace in your heart,and not mad at God, We are sinners meaning we all imperfect ecc 9:11 circumstances, disabilities weakness, befall us all,its sad.But the hope is in Jesus christ that soon his father’s kingdom will come and have that opportunity to live the perfect life he intended for Us, free of pain, I admire your strength, you will get thru this,I had a placenta rupture & my son was borderline to point of losing oxygen, I’ve had 2 miscarriages, I can’t imagine your pain, breaks my heart, But I believe you will see him again alive and enjoy raising him and perfect conditions, also still be able to give him a sibling, hoping you much healing

  • Hi felly, these videos I’ve stumbled across today and I’ve learned a lot from your videos, the way you keep his memory alive and what you do for comfort makes me want to do the same. I lose my daughter Ruby 11-4-2013 at 20 weeks, baby peanut 12-1-2014 at 6 weeks and baby bean 14-12-14 also at 6 weeks and although it’s been years it still hurts just as much as the day I lost them�� thank u so much for the support you show other angel mums and for sharing your story, lots of love x

  • Hi my name is adia I have reached out to someone about getting you a Braxton Reborn… is that something you would be interested… I know that you love to cuddle with his little bear but maybe a Braixen Reborn to go along with his bear…

  • That was the hardest part for me was telling people that my twins were gone. I can’t explain quite how I felt, but I was embarrassed and didn’t want people to even acknowledge that I lost them. I asked my boss to talk to the area and tell them not to say anything about them and just act like a normal business day. After a week of people just going on BAU, it really started bothering me cause I wanted someone to just talk to me about it now that I was ready… but they were just following my request. I feel all of your pain and am crying writing this since it brings back flashbacks of my situation. Hugs to you mama ❤️

  • I am so very sorry that you have had to endure such pain,loss,,and sorrow. You are strong and be gentle with yourself you can grieve how you need to and how long you need to. Im sure it’s hard in just everyday life. You were blessed to have had him even of it was a short time. My heart is breaking for you. But allow yourself time to heal. Again I am so sad for you and praying you find peace.����

  • Im sooo sorry for your loss �� my son Elias born on October 10 2018 ���� he is my rainbow baby after I loss his twins sisters �� remember after the storm there’s always a rainbow of hope. Wait for your rainbow baby. Follow taylor kellie her story is similar of your and now she have her rainbow daughter xoxo

  • Your beautiful
    Your strong
    And always Braxton’s mama
    I know your hurt, all a little to familiar for me.
    I pray for you and I pray for us mothers who have this hurt for our lost babies. We will always carry them in our hearts.

  • I just wanted to say you’re such a strong and beautiful person. Braxton would be so proud of his mama. He’ll always be your baby boy ❤️ lots of love! ❤️

  • I’m praying for your pain to ease, I tear up almost every time your voice cracks because I can’t imagine the feeling of losing a child. as a teen mom this was my biggest fear because I had a complication towards the end of my pregnancy, I’m very heart broken for you, but I’m praying for your pain to ease and for you to once regain happiness once again, Braxton is always around hes always listening remember he loves you since the moment he was conceived ♥️

  • This might sound stupid but if they ask you could say you are a parent but your child is with god.I am not a parent and I haven’t had an experience like this sorry if my advice is bad.

  • Hey sweet heart I lost my first child on 08/24/2018… I’m so sorry for your lost to baby Braxton.. I can definitely relate to your feelings and will keep you my prayers.

  • hey mama, I don’t know if this will help, but theres stores that you can get a stuffed animal with the exact length and weight of your baby. It might be comforting, I wish I could help more!

  • You are such a strong & Beautiful Mama ❤️ Praying for your healing. I has a miscarriage at 11 weeks & I can’t even begin to imagine your pain. Wishing you all the best ❤️ Baby Braxton is watching over you! What a beautiful baby boy ❤️

  • I don’t know how you came up on my feed, but I’m glad you did! I totally can’t relate to anything you’re going through but thank you for sharing. You’re so strong!

  • My daughter shared one of your videos and I just want to say I’m very sorry for your loss. You are very brave to share your journey. Also, this will sound a bit crazy but I dreamt I was breastfeeding a baby. I was so sad and happy at the same time (in my dream) if it’s OK with you, would you share your experience with your body changes after giving birth? By the way, I am dealing with something very difficult and I totally understand how you feel mentally drained. It’s very difficult to focus on what you do on a daily basis. I do feel like giving up, but I have to keep going. You’re very beautiful by the way! Keep loving your baby and he will always be in your heart.

  • I just came across your channel and I’m so sorry for your loss. I don’t mean to be rude or over stepping or anything like that but I’m curious if you are receiving therapy or going to counseling? A loss is a very traumatic experience and you should get all the time and help you need to grieve. Again I’m not trying to be rude but it helped me so much, I didn’t lose my son but I had him premature and I had a lot of trouble coming to terms with it and I can’t even imagine what your are going through. Lots of love and best wishes to you ��

  • Everytime I watch one of these videos I just ball my eyes out with you. I don’t know what it’s like to go through what you went through but somehow I feel you pain when you talk about it.. one thing I know forsure is you have one handsome guardian angel. My cousin son passed away when he was 9 months old and they let off balloons with messages on them every year! I’m not sure if you would want to do that but it’s a idea. My prayers are with you and your husband girl. ❣️

  • Such a beautiful individual, following your story has both educated me, while still allowing me to be understanding under the circumstances:( this is so heartbreaking. No one deserves this.

  • I’m so so so sorry this happened to you. I am very young but I want to be a big sister. But that’s not going to happen. My mother had a stroke when I was born she was so scared something happened to me. But I’m fine and she can’t walk very good or move her arm, her right side. And it’s very dangerous for her to have a baby again. So yeah that’s why I can’t be a big sister. You are very strong, I’m very sorry this happened to you.

  • You are a strong lady.
    I go back to work today after losing my boy at 22 weeks gestation. One of my good friends gave birth 3 days before I delivered my baby and I’m extremely anxious and angry. Luckily I came across your video. It’s been one month since I found out he wasn’t ok, but this gives me a little courage before I walk through those doors.

  • You are so beautiful �� and I know Braxton is proud of you bebe as you are him, there’s a brighter end to this dark tunnel and when you find it to make you stronger I hope you eventually feel betters, never forget but only let it make you stronger. You are so strong and beautiful I can understand why you felt like a robot without him cause your kinda goin through something that hurts so much you can’t enjoy anything else you can’t get depressed tho please stay strong mama he still lookin at you I seen your hummingbird video it made me think Braxton sent those he’s saying hello ���� and that elephant �� is the cutest try getting a hobby to take your mind off things, when I’m sad I enjoy swimming ��‍♀️ or drawing ✍️ �� it’s good to talk about things cause holding them in can make it worse ��
