Malin Andersson – Navigating Pre-Natal Depression

As we’re approaching baby loss awareness week, I write this blog with a heavy but also light heart. I’m currently pregnant with my second child, but as many of you may know, I’m still grieving the loss of my first child, Consy.

After giving birth at 32 weeks and being alive for only one month, my beautiful baby girl died. As I write this, it still seems surreal to me; even 3 years on, it doesn’t get easier. You just learn how to cope and live differently.

Being a mum is something I’ve always wanted to be. Losing my own mum to cancer 4 years ago hit me hard and left me wanting my own family. My dad passed away when I was 11 months old, so I never had a complete family unit growing up. My mum was my rock, and the role she played in my life was so important. She’s made me who I am today. My strength comes from her, and I know being pregnant without my mum here is the most scariest thing.
