    Hi Katie

    I’m so sorry to hear what has happened. Losing a baby can put strain on the best relationships. Men & women deal with things very differently & in my experience even when you know someone very well, nothing has quite prepared either of you how to deal with this. I think maybe this is his way of dealing with things at the moment. Can you talk to him? Would he be prepared to go to counselling with you? I think I went quite mad after losing Grace, my husband could do nothing right & I think he often felt like he was walking on eggshells, not wanting to do or say the wrong thing. I had counselling & he came along to a session. I think it helped us both to understand how the other one felt. Ultimately we were both devastated by the loss of our child, as you are.
    Be gentle on yourself. Do you have a good friend you can talk to, cry to?
    Thinking of you & hope things are brighter for you soon.

    Max, x
