Birth of identical twins but death of one

I was wondering if anyone else has gone through my situation. The night of Sandy I went into labor and delivered two beautiful baby boys, Lucien and Roman. I was just 27 weeks pregnant. Sadly, one of our boys didn't make it through the night and passed away from a nasty infection. His brother was in the NICU for 10 weeks but he's been home for about 2 months now and he's doing great. Although we've been through hell, I feel so blessed that Roman's healthy and I thank God every day for giving me such an amazing family and friends. But, sometimes, I feel so guilty that I'm not being a good mother to Lucien because I'm grateful for my life.

Just wondering if anyone has been through something similar and if you know of any support groups for parents with a similar experience. Also, how do you deal with the guilt.

I agree. There is a woman on the boards, although I am not sure if she posts anymore, who also lost a twin at birth or close to it.

I wish you all the best, I am so sorry Chat Icon Chat Icon
