Hello All!


My name is Danielle Anderson and I am the Secretary for The Mace Anthony Williamson Foundation. This foundation means the world to me, not only because of the close sisterhood I formed with thee Founder and CEO, Maiye Waller. But also, due to my own story of dealing with child loss and being able to get through it with the help of her and my other close sisters.


I am a Crohn’s Warrior, I don’t like to say victim because that to me, sounds like I’m defeated.
But as someone who suffers from a chronic illness, I have been through the wire when it comes to medicines and such. One of them being chemotherapy, and well, what they don’t tell you is after chemo more medicine is administered to then fight off the chemo. February 14th, 2019, I found out I was pregnant. Instant joy was felt but then shattered by instant pain and realization that the medication I was currently on (after the chemo) would not allow me to have a proper or even healthy pregnancy. So, once I went to my doctor and let her know that I am possibly pregnant, we went through the ringer to see what would be the best option and it came down to only 2. Have a high risk pregnancy which could mean the baby would or would not make it plus the baby could be born sick themselves or have a medically induced abortion. And I sat on the idea for a full 2 weeks! But ultimately made the hard decision to have the baby go to a better place and not live a life of constant suffering.


The hardest part of all of this was not being able to have something to hold. To have constant symptoms and feelings of being pregnant and not be able to hold your baby after it is all said and done. Luckily though, as I stated in the beginning, I have sisters who kept me afloat and reminded me that this one incident does NOT dictate who I am as a woman or mother to be in the future. Best advice I can give to any person going through this is to FEEL and allow yourself to feel anytime and any how feels best for you as long as it doesn’t harm you or anyone else. And always have a tribe around you, people that can help you breathe when you feel its too hard to do so. We can all get through this, together the better.

Hi 

I am Trinesha Davis the Lead Directory of The Mace Anthony Williamson Foundation. I feel honored to be a part of this Movement that helps give a voice to the mothers and their babies because I am one of those mother’s and my son Josias Christopher was one of those babies. January 2017 after realizing what I thought was a stomach virus was actually a baby I was 5 weeks and excited. But the experience was not as magical as I hoped it would be. Out of the maybe 7 appointments I had I never saw the same doctor. They never discussed when I expressed concerns about the weird pains I felt and I always felt dismissed and unheard. Not only were the doctors doing it but family members that already had children were invalidating what I said and felt. I was always told “That baby the size of a plum you’re not feeling anything” “Your a hypochondriac”

At 2am 04/07/17 I awoke in a puddle of blood and in a lot of pain. Although Living 10 minutes away from the hospital I was not seen till after 4am. I was 16 weeks pregnant and had never seen my son on an ultrasound till then. His Heartbeat was strong he was moving around and I thought everything was going to be ok. At 6am a doctor finally seen me and said I would need a minor surgery because I was threatening a miscarriage. Just the sound of that word freaked me out and I started “peeing” on myself. I told a nurse I was peeing and she just looked at me and said no you’re not just lay back down. A doctor told me my water had broke and I was miscarrying and I’d have to deliver the baby. I was given two options continue on with the labor or wait a day to see if my fluids would fill back up. But that second option was given in a way that scared me into choosing to have him. Its an everyday battle wishing and wondering what if I just waited and wasn’t scared into believing I’d die. I wish I had an Organization like The MAW Foundation that would help me be heard, and give me resources and access to someone who cares about me and my child.

After pushing my son out his umbilical cord detached from my placenta and a doctor made a comment that I was going lose him regardless. My placenta had to be surgically removed so I didn’t see my son till hours after I had him. Idk what felt worse feeling like I was being rushed to leave the hospital without my son or actually leaving the hospital without him.

My issues with how I was being treated by doctors didn’t end when I left the hospital. I had concerns and questions on how I just woke up lost my child. Why did the doctor say I would’ve lost him anyways? And the answer I got was “It just happens”. I wanted to know if I did something wrong, was it a medical issue, or what could I have done differently, but I got no answers.

The coping was a long and hard process that I still deal with 4 years later. My relationship was strained because my significant other didn’t know how to help me and I couldn’t help myself. Returning to work was very hard because there were 5 other expecting coworkers and that’s were I experienced a switch from grief to jealousy. Although short lived it was there the feeling of unfairness, And devastation and anger that I felt after one told me I didn’t get to celebrate Mother’s Day because I wasn’t a mother. I almost chose violence that day and lost my job. I dealt with a Facebook troll using my sons death against me over a difference in opinion.

The hardest thing about coping is the ignorant things people say, and how they are unaware they hurt you. All the “You’re young you’ll have more” “ It was Gods plan” “God needed him more” etc. only made things worse. It’s a day by day process but with time and friends that have dealt with similar things it has gotten better.
