Nikki Peterson, SLOW’s Bereavement Support Services Manager, gave an interview to the Metro about the death of her baby daughter Rosie.

The story was published ahead of Baby Loss Awareness Week which Nikki knows is bittersweet. It’s a week to remember our babies and raise awareness of baby loss – something that happens too often. It’s a difficult week as baby loss is heightened across social channels which brings up painful and deeply emotional memories.

Between the 9th – 15th October, if you’ve experienced baby loss, it’s important that you choose to engage with the week how you want to. By that, Nikki means, it’s ok to completely disengage, take a break from social, turn off notifications or mute altogether. Your emotional wellbeing needs to come first.

Ultimately, Nikki’s story here is one of hope. She knows she is incredibly fortunate to go on and have three healthy children, she was able to rebuild her life after the death of her daughter and she often describes Rosie as her super power and of course, Rosie is the very reason why Nikki does the work she does today.

“When I lost Rosie, I lost my future plans, I lost my innocence, my confidence, my happiness, friends, dreams, trust, everything. But you can rebuild your life after the death of a child and there is a process to that. I always say Rosie is my superpower and she inspires me to create a life of meaning and love.”
