Celina Jaitly opened up about losing premature baby

Celina Jaitly recently posted on Instagram a tragic message along with photos of her late son and a letter about the grief she experienced after his passing. Pictured cradling her infant in her arms and posing with her spouse is Celina. She also shared photos of her joyful family as well as images of the newborn in the care unit. 

Celina stated that it took her 5 years to deal with her loss and that she would finally like to share about her experience in order to help other parents who have faced the difficulties of preterm birth. She wrote: “Peter n I want such parents to know that they can get through this. In personal experience we both can vouch that your Preemie baby is a true survivor. #preemies show us the power of faith & prayer and the fight of the human spirit. Remember that most #prematurebabies survive and live completely normal, healthy lives.”

Celina talked about her struggles

Celina expressed her concern for Arthur, her other twin, who spent three months in an incubator. She uttered, “The NICU was a strange & difficult environment. From our experience, accepting that there will be good days and bad days will help you to feel less shocked & worried when challenging days happen. While not an option for everyone, Peter & I moved into the same hospital in Dubai for the few months of #nicu. The loss of Shamsher left us immensely anxious about Arthur and feelings of frustration, intense sadness, nervousness, disappointment, guilt, anger, love overwhelmed us too.”

Celina said that preterm birth parents are not alone in their struggle and that they will eventually find a way to get past their pain. She continued, “Know that extreme & sometimes contradictory emotions are experienced by nearly every parent of a preemie at one time or another. It is very important at such a time to remember you can be more effective as a team than individually so watch your teamwork as parents. Speaking, singing gently to your premature baby in the NICU is a great way to bond and feel close, even when you can’t hold him. Remember Impossible odds set the stage for incredible miracles.”

Fans of the actress have expressed empathy for her and have wished her family well in the future. They also expressed gratitude for her candor in sharing her story, saying that it would be helpful to other parents who had been through similar struggles.
