Doris Limnos is a wife and mother to 3 earthside children and one stillborn angel. On the 19th May 2014, while 41 weeks pregnant and in the early stages of labour with baby number 3, she gave birth to a silent but beautiful baby girl, Elysia Grace. The loss of her daughter tested her relationships, mental health and faith but with the help of her loving support network and much grief-work, counselling and therapy, there is healing and a new-found appreciation of love mixed beautifully with pain.
Doris is very passionate about removing the taboo and talking openly and honestly about pregnancy and infant loss on social media, as well as educating those who come in contact with grieving parents on how they can get alongside their hurting friends in the most practical, mindful and genuine ways, walking alongside them in what is a very lonely and lifelong journey.
On the 23rd May 2016, 2 years and 4 days after the loss of sweet Lissie, she welcomed her second son and rainbow, Malachi Nathan. Doris is humbled and honoured to be a contributor for Still Standing Magazine, and her sincerest wish is that her story and experiences might bring hope, comfort, and that nod of ‘yep, I hear you’, so you know you are not alone.
