When you are nurturing a human inside you, there is not a bigger nightmare than this. Experiencing bleeding and cramping when 31-years-old Joan Bremer visited to her doctor, she faced this nightmare- Miscarriage.
“It took about three days to recover, and during that time I thought of getting a tattoo to mark this life experience,” Bremer told TODAY Parent.“For me, all the tattoos I have signify something, and even though this was a painful time, I still wanted to be able to remember it in some way.” she added.
And there began her search for a perfect tattoo that can sum up her pain. After finalizing a design connecting two hearts with one line, she had it embossed on her just a few days after her miscarriage.
She said “If we are able to carry a baby to term and have a healthy child, I will add a rainbow baby to this design since ‘rainbow babies’ are babies that are conceived after a loss, just like how something beautiful can come after a storm,” she added “If I end up having a second miscarriage. I will most likely to add another heart to this design.”
See this amazing tattoo. How a small print on your body shows the strength by which you handles your pain. It’s sad but beautiful.
“Losing a baby, even if it’s early in pregnancy, is just so difficult,” said Bremer. “For me, it was healing to be able to speak about it. I know there is a certain silence about miscarriages and pregnancy losses, but I am not ashamed that this happened to me. That was one of my motivations for getting the tattoo in the first place — I really think it’s healing to be able to talk about it.”
