In case you have not heard, there is a new movie out, which aired on Lifetime, called Return to Zero. Its a movie about a couple who lose a child, in fact, its about a couple who experiences a stillbirth. There was a lot of hype about this movie in the baby loss community and for many good reasons. The movie, though not the same for everyone, really showcases how it is to experience a stillbirth. Or so I was told by many people who watched it.
I have chosen not to watch it at this point. I am not ready. I have been incredibly emotional lately. I'm vulnerable and weak and cannot take going through the experience again. I've been having flashbacks as is and I didn't need any more prompts. I do hope that one day I will be able to watch it but I cant right now.
However, I do encourage everyone who has not experienced stillbirth to watch it.
