"Are you sure you want to remove this child or pregnancy from your profile?"
This is the question BabyCenter asks if you've lost a baby and no longer wish to receive their weekly baby development updates. Last February, we learned that Cora's birthmom had a miscarriage. She was carrying Cora's full sibling and had asked us to adopt the baby. Back then, I had also subscribed to the Baby Center updates. I remember having a hard time with the opt-out screen language then as I did today when I "removed" Emily from my profile. I feel like yelling at the screen: "NO!! I AM NOT SURE. I WANT TO KEEP HER!!"
I contacted BabyCenter last February with a suggestion that they wish to consider tweaking the language a bit as anyone reading the words on this screen has lost a baby. To someone who has lost a baby, the specific words used (e.g. "are you SURE you WANT to REMOVE") do matter. I suggested that there could be more caring language that could be used or simply a box to uncheck and the rep I corresponded with agreed with me. But apparently, they didn't follow through on the suggestion. So I'm having a few tears as I "remove" a baby from my profile once again. And, no I am NOT sure, and I do NOT want to REMOVE the baby. :(
