Healing our Broken Hearts

This site (, has been my saving grace along with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I remember after losing Alyssa-Joy I was lost in grief. I became a crazy woman researching everything about Incompetent Cervix and women. I stumbled across this site and immediately joined.
This site provides a medium through which women with an Incompetent Cervix can reach out to other women with this issue, walk the TTC journey with them, share joys, sadness, successes and praises, and for those who are new to this such as myself, answer my questions. Not from a medical standpoint (I get enough of that from the doctors), but from a personal standpoint. Many of the women have traveled a similar road, are in the process of trying to conceive, and have conceived with the help of a cerclage.
From meeting these women, I have gotten a renewed sense of hope. These women come from all over the world, different ethnicities cultures, careers, and so on, but we are all linked by a common thread - having a weak cervix, trying to get past grief and trying to bless our angels with a sibling.

Through this forum, I have made some great friends who I was surprised to know live close to me. With these women (as well as the ones on the forum) I share my most intimate feelings and am never judged because of how I feel. If you know anyone who is traveling this road, please direct them to this site. The support is overwhelming and the things I have learned surprise my doctors. I am now armed with information I need when discussing with doctors getting a cerclage and my ultimate prenatal care.
Again, the forum is -

Awaiting my expected end.
