sharing your stories and remembering your children
By: Maria Servold EPLA Editor
For more than a week, the world has been turned upside-down. Many of us cannot meet up with friends, attend church, or host birthday parties. The disruption of most of our daily activities, though, does not mean that all things stop.
Sadly, there are still women around the world going through the pain and loss of miscarriage. These women and their families are not only experiencing the loneliness and sadness that come from losing a child, they have to experience these feelings while also “social distancing.”
Thankfully, in our social media age, it’s still possible to connect with friends, family, and even doctors electronically. Now more than ever, we are glad to be a part of the online community who helps care for women after miscarriage.
If someone you know is suffering from a miscarriage during this pandemic, send them our website link and Facebook page. They can still reach out for resources, and we will still provide them. We seek to help all women and families, no matter the state of the world.
