Bereaved fathers should never be ashamed to discuss the loss of their baby,

A father who has lost his children says that he hopes to encourage other dads to share their grief.

Wayne Campbell, a 40-year-old lorry driver, said that "as a man it is almost programmed into me that we have to act as the strong masculine figure which isn't affected any other."

"Boiling things up will cause more harm than good," I say.

As part of a charity support work, Mr Campbell shared his story.

Tommy's, the pregnancy and baby loss organization, has created a website that provides additional help for dads and their partners. It directs them to real-life accounts and information.

According to the charity, the hub for dads and partners is designed to address the unique challenges faced at each stage of pregnancy.

The resource includes Mr Campbell's and Amy Campbell's experiences of losing two children in a short time.

The couple from Rugby, Warwickshire lost Grayson in a miscarriage. Mr Campbell captured the final moments of the couple with Piper in 2020. He described the process to induce miscarriage following a scan that showed Piper no longer had a heartbeat.

He posted videos online that were viewed thousands of times.

He advised fathers to not hide their emotions or cry.

They have had a healthy boy since then, thanks to the Tommy's National Centre for Miscarriage Research Clinic in Coventry.

Mrs Campbell claimed that she had just lost another child.

She explained that although it's taboo, no one seems to ever talk about it. However, so many people have been through it."

She said that she wanted to help "even one person" so that they would know they are not the only ones feeling the same way.

Mr Campbell stated that if you don't communicate well with your partner, it could appear as if you aren't affected. This can lead to a rift.

"Remember that you are not the only one."
