Maybe it's because October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, and October 15 is the day where we can all come out and support one another in our loss and our hope, or maybe I'm just feeling extra fuzzy right now.
I've come to realize, thanks to the amazingness of the internet, that there are so many amazing, strong, fabulous women out there who have gotten the TAC in order to give themselves the absolute BEST chance in keeping their babies in for the long haul. Lara, Marie, Alyson, Sara to name four - all fighters who made the sacrifice of pain, blood, sweat and tears to ensure future hope.
I'm overwhelmed by what the TAC can do. I'm awestruck by what it HAS done. I want to shout it from the rooftops, and I want every woman who even has an inkling of cervical issues to have it done. I have to walk a fine line between being obnoxious about it and being too mum. I want to share with women, but unfortunately, the only way they know about their cervical issues is when it's too late. Everyone reacts differently to the hurt that follows. I wanted education, I wanted to read stories like my own, I wanted an answer, and I wanted HOPE that it wouldn't happen again.
So, if you're out there reading this after a loss from cervical insufficiency, I hope you've learned about a surgery that DOES give hope.
