View Full Version : Baby Ryan
Our son Ryan was stillborn at 39 1/2wks on 17th September 2010 at 6:43pm weighing 3.920kg (7lb 4oz) and was 51cm long. No words can explain the pain both you and your partner feel when you are told your baby has died. That day and the day of Ryan's memorial on the 20th were the hardest days I've ever experienced.
To help with our grieving both my wife and I decided to open a fund raising page for Bears of Hope in honor of our son to help bring more support to those parents that suffer stillbirth, infant loss or miscarriage.
We are now trying to raise as much as we can by 22nd September 2011 and any donated amount will greatly help. (all donations over $2 are tax deductible).
Here is the link, and thank you.
Jason and Tara.
im so sorry for your family's loss..RIP baby Ryan :hugs::hugs:
Thank you for support. My wife and I attended the stillbirth foundation lunch last weekend and we were overwhelmed with the number of people that attended and how many have been through the same experience as us.
By us talking about our son and fund raising for bears of hope we hope to bring as much awareness to stillbirth as we can. We feel that stillbirth isn't discussed as openly as miscarriage in the birthing classes which is a disappointment, and the support for the husbands of stillbirth children is also lacking.
We have 2 beautiful boys already and to have our third child stillborn was a shock as we had no issues with our previous pregnancies. For it to occur in the final days of the pregnancy was also a shock.
Jason, i'm so sorry for your loss. I think what you are doing is great. People are not very open when it comes to stillbirth but it is scary at how much it actually happens.
I lost my first little boy @ 36 weeks so i know exactly what you are going thru. His b'day is on Sunday & it will be 9 years since it all happened & it is still hard. We have since gone on to have 3 girls & a little boy 10 weeks ago... his name is Ryan.
Sending lots of :hugs::hugs: to you & your wife & thinking about your beautiful baby Ryan
Jason, & Tara,
:hugs: Sending our love & hugs to you both.
Our son was stillborn in May, and it has been such a difficult heartbreaking time.
I agree, there are not many resources to help grieving fathers, the focus is so much on the mum's. My DH has experienced this, and has struggled to find other dad's that A) have been through it, B) are willing to talk about it. He's a talker, unlike a lot of blokes I guess, and was so very much looking forward to our first baby's arrival. We are both missing our little man so very much.
