sharing your stories and remembering your children
By: The Editors
Families experience an extreme range of emotions before and after a miscarriage. The elation of pregnancy nosedives when parents find out they have lost their child. In the former, parents often rejoice with loved ones, all parties exuberant about the new life. In the latter, loss parents too often suffer alone, leery of how uncomfortable their sadness makes other people.
In the Daily Mail, Elizabeth Day sums it up this way while hoping Meghan Markel has a healthy child:
“So as Meghan prepares to give birth to what I hope will be a happy and healthy child, I think not just of her but of all the other women who might be experiencing loss. I would like these women to know that the sadness they feel over their miscarriage is just as important as the joy we are expected to channel for someone else’s pregnancy. I would like them to know that they are not alone.”
For those of you struggling with the sadness of miscarriage, know that your pain matters to others. Your little one matters to others. You are not alone.
