She walked into my office and started crying. We had never met or spoken in person, but my first act was to grab a tissue and give her a hug. I didn’t know why she was crying — she was 25 weeks pregnant so I thought, “Pregnancy hormones?”
As I backed out of the hug, I saw her gaze fixed on something behind me: a rainbow scarf I had draped on the couch in my office.
“I’m pregnant with my rainbow baby,” she whispered. “And I feel so guilty.”
I’ll call her Allison; she was my new HypnoBirthing client.
