Grief - After a Loss

The Three Stages of Menopause: 

  1. Perimenopause
  2. Menopause
  3. Post menopause
Have you experienced 12 consecutive months without your period? Guess what? You are in menopause. During menopause the female eggs dry up and your child-bearing days are over.
One of the biggest challenges is having hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Menopause causes anxiety and depression. As well as excessive sadness and a host of other conditions. The upside of menopause, for me, was the thought of no more maxi pads and tampons.

Reborns Add Value to Your Life

A reborn baby doll can add value to one’s life. Unlike a real baby, reborns come with no real-world mess. For instance, there are no diapers, no smells, no feeding, no crying and they never grow up into toddlers. They never get a chance to say “I hate you.” This is a real plus for reborn moms.
We must not judge women who have reborns. Stop being bias and judgmental about the choices people make. Instead, why not show empathy and understanding? There is no harm in having a hobby that shows love and care for a reborn baby doll. We need to open our minds and show empathy and understanding. It would be a miscarriage of justice to think otherwise.
