Highlands Ranch, CO (PRWEB) September 4, 2007
After losing her 14-week old baby, Wendy Becker was amazed at how many women confided in her that they too had suffered miscarriages. Often their losses occurred before their pregnancies were publicly announced, and fearing no-one would understand the pain they carried in their hearts, these women kept the depths of their sorrow silent. Having a miscarriage is often compared to joining a secret club - there are many members but we don't know who they are until we join ourselves.
Desperate to find a keepsake that would keep her baby's memory alive, Ms. Becker found herself drawn to her last ultrasound image - the baby was curled up peacefully in the shape of half a heart. Although she has no background in jewelry making, Ms. Becker became determined to turn that image into a real keepsake charm.
"Baby in My Heart" memorial keepsake jewelry was created to honor the life of Ms. Becker's unborn child who died in November, 2006. It can be found on her website: http://www.miscarriagememories.com as well as on several other bereavement and support websites. Ms. Becker has found comfort in knowing that her design gives others tangible reminders of their beloved babies, and it has helped her understand that there was a purpose for her baby's brief life. Ms. Becker states, "I've been overwhelmed by the positive response to this design. I am so grateful that my design has helped so many with their healing."
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day (October 15th) is a time to raise awareness of the personal stories that accompany the statistics. Too many women feel that no-one understands their pain, their bodies failed them, or that others believe they did something wrong and harmed their babies. Members of this "secret club" need to share their stories so that everyone understands miscarriage happens, it's no-one's fault, it's painful, and there is no need to suffer in silence any longer.
