ER episode.

Postby sweetiesuzy » Fri May 07, 2004 05:35 am

Did anyone happen to see ERs episode last night? They did a story about stillbirth at eight months gestation due to a true knot in the umbilical cord. I know this is unrelated to preeclampsia, but our daughter did not die due to pre-e. Millions of families suffer in silence because our society is not equipt to accept and nurture those in the midst of grief. It was a very hard episode for my husband and I to watch... I felt as if I was reliving Chloes death all over again. BUT - I was glad that they did the episode so that more awareness is brought to the forefront.

The importance of recognizing our precious babies and knowing how crucial it is to embrace the time and memories we have with our children is priceless.

One step at a time we are showing the world the need for grief recognition with the hopes of cures for preeclampsia and stillbirth.

Hugs and love to you all ~

It was so sad but I am glad they did the story line as they did. It was very hard to see and the tears were rolling down my face.

Suz... How are you feeling?

I saw it too. I wonder if there is a write on ER that has had PreeClampsia. It has been mentioned a couple of times on other episodes.

My husband refused to watch it and stayed out of the living room last night. As a mother who has lost a baby, the moment that brought me to tears was when they were binding her breasts so her milk would not come in.

Talk about opening the flood gates of memories and emotions...

I thought about watching it after Friends ended but desided to go to bed instead. I didn't know what was coming on, I'm glad I didn't watch, its still to soon to go threw that!

Great episode! I knew what was going to happen because I saw the ads beforehand and said to myself, "There's only one thing that could make Carter that sad."[:(] It was still hard to watch, though.

I watched it as well. There were too many similarities for me on that one. I had ecclampsia but what took my little Emma's life was ultimately a knot in her umbilical cord (I was having seizures and the doc speculates that it caused her to become hyper active resulting in the knot). I sat there with the tears streaming down. I know it may seem weird but in a way watching it actually helped me in a small way.

I saw it too and cried the whole way through. I had figured that the baby would die from the previews but, I just felt like I needed to watch it. From the moment he got up to get her orange juice, I just cried and cried.

The part that really got me was when she was still in labor and Carter went to the vending machine to get some coffee and ran into the guy who was having his 3rd. It just brought me right back to when we were in the hospital and shortly after Zach died - life went on all around us while our world was falling apart.
