Giving birth can be an emotional roller coaster, even when everything goes well. Seeing your very own child for the first time is enough to bring anyone to tears, and if something goes wrong it can feel like the world is ending.
At moments like those, compassion and sensitivity is of the utmost importance, something Millie Smith learned after giving birth to her first child.
This woman couldn’t have meant to hurt Millie’s feelings, but the problem was that Milliedid have twins not too long ago. Unfortunately, Callie’s twin sister died just a few hours after birth because of an awful brain condition.
To prevent other grieving mothers from going through what she went through, Millie had a brilliant idea in the form of an unassuming purple butterfly sticker.
It’s terrible that it took such a tragedy to get the purple butterfly idea going, but it’s great that Millie is redirecting her pain into something positive. Hopefully, soon every hospital will have these stickers!
