So, my infant son was born with cleft lip/palate and the first surgery was nothing short of traumatic for the both of us. The hardest part for me was the recovery room, and then waves of trauma after it. He is due for more surgery in December and I really could use some help mentally preparing!
I read a bit about the bubble work and I look forward to sitting with that, however, how can one stay supportive without being so overrun with empathy for a hurting baby. I didn't put up any shields, but now I know it's not an option. After his first surgery I was literally so overwhelmed to even hold him at first because I was so consumed by his pain. Are there crystals to help? Any other ideas ??
