Have you, or someone close to you, experienced miscarriage, or the loss of a child during pregnancy?
The impact of such a loss can have a profound impact, and the depth of sadness can at times seem overwhelming. It is not always easy to share these experiences with friends and family.
Sometimes, we don’t even know how to allow ourselves to grieve.
Grief in miscarriage is often hidden, as we keep the early days of our pregnancy a secret, wary of prematurely announcing our joyful anticipation until after the first three months. The pain of our loss is then kept to our inner circle, perhaps hoping that “it was all for the best” or “we’ll forget about that and try again”.
Successive miscarriages can be even more difficult to accept, when the grief of the loss may seem just too hard to bear, and is often accompanied by feelings of despair, shame and worthlessness.
Maybe we ask ourselves the question “why me?” or “what did I do wrong?”
I have been in this situation and would like to help you.
I am an accredited provider with the Foundation for Infant Loss, and offer a gentle and accepting space where you can feel free to process your grief. Sometimes just talking to a compassionate and empathic listener can help.
