The 1 in 4: Corbin's 28 Days

As I write this to be shared on February 28th, I think of the significance of that number. My second son, Corbin, was born on the 28th of December in 2011. He lived for 28 days, and we buried him on January 28th, 2012. I’ll never look at the number 28 the same way again. After having an emergency C-section with my first son in 2008, I decided to attempt a VBAC for my second pregnancy. I found a supportive doctor, took good care of myself, and felt well-prepared for my unmedicated natural delivery. I was 40 weeks and 2 days pregnant when I woke up the morning of December 28th.

To be honest it never crossed my mind that something could go wrong this late in the game. I was one week away

The 1 in 4: The Griffin Group

Miscarriage is one of those things you hear about but never think will happen to you. That was true for me, especially after having a healthy baby following a textbook pregnancy in my first experience. I found out I was pregnant again when my son was just nine months old, and while I was overwhelmed at the idea of having two so close together, I was also excited to see my babies become best friends. I began to look at double strollers and plan for a life with "two under two." That is until I heard those seven words that shattered my world: "I'm sorry, I can't find a heartbeat," the ultrasound technician said as I lay motionless on the table. I had what is known as a missed miscarriage, which
