Support After Miscarriage
Guilt. Denial. Anger. Jealousy. Withdrawal. Sorrow. Many of these emotions are experienced by a woman after a miscarriage, and may also be experienced by others in the family. A miscarriage can be devastating, and the isolation and loneliness that often follow are especially painful.
You are not alone. About a fifth of all known pregnancies end in miscarriage. There are many possible causes and factors that can lead to a miscarriage, but it is often undeterminable. It’s important to remember that it is not your fault.
No matter how far into the pregnancy you were, a miscarriage can cause the same pain as losing an older child or loved one. A bond was formed and the loss is real and grieving is necessary. Feeling the loss and working through your feelings will lead you to eventually find healing and hope. It’s important to talk with someone you trust that will allow you to openly share what’s on your heart, the disappointment and sadness you are feeling.
