Revealing Arthur had passed away from a sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) via a post-mortem, Laurie continually blamed herself for the first year and struggled to mourn.

But gradually, the mom came to understand that Arthur’s death had occurred for a reason and started to regain her strength by engaging in a healing business working as an astrologer, psychotherapist and psychic.

The new mom has also decided to bravely share her story to Mark Baby Loss Awareness Week later this month, in a bid to warn breastfeeding mothers about the dangers of co-sleeping
