My husband and I began IVF and the first cycle of ICSI was exhausting. Then there was a suspected miscarriage and instead of slipping back into the dark, I clung onto the coursework. But then, two days after returning home from the hospital, having left her in the mortuary, I realised I had an assignment deadline.
I completed an assignment while waiting to hear if we had lost the baby because in that world, the world of studying, everything was clean and straightforward and welcoming. I carried on with the modules, I carried on with the work and when the pregnancy started to become complicated, I carried on. I wasn’t sleeping, I was struggling after the c-section, and I was grieving for my daughter.
And work that I produced was published and my skill as a writer grew, and that’s all thanks to the OU.
My last module was advanced creative writing and the work that I produced in that course forms part of my next published pamphlet.
