Guest Post from Ezra and Micah's Daddy: Ezra in the September issue of Glamour Magazine



I wouldn't have expected this, with the second anniversary of Ezra's birth and death approaching, but Glamour magazine asked me to contribute a part of an article dealing with a woman who lost her baby after seven. months of pregnancy.  They wanted to include a section on what fathers experience from the loss of a child.  I'm happy, at least, that this subject is getting the attention it deserves.  Hopefully this will help others.  Please check out the September issue of Glamour (print edition) if you can.

I just read this! Someone else directed me to it. Always great to see our losses covered in a mainstream publication. I was however disappoitned to see they labelled the woman's loss as a miscarriage, when in fact her baby was 29 weeks. Just goes to show how little is understood about our losses.
Good on you for getting your story out there, David. The grief of far too many of the babylost daddies is sadly ignored. Your stories and voices are so needed here.
Thinking of you as Ezra's days approach.
With love
Sally
