You are utterly overwhelmed by shock and grief, lost to the powerful hormone changes happening in your system in the days right after a miscarriage. Right now, you need to be surrounded by people that will stabilize your world through this unimaginable storm. You need your loss to be seen, heard, and held. You need to find a way to make it to tomorrow.
In the weeks or months after your miscarriage, you may avoid baby showers, baptisms, or friends who were pregnant at the same time you were. You might feel really “off” one day… only to realize it is what would have been your due date. Right now, you need meaningful ways to acknowledge your loss. It is real. And it deserves this attention.
In the years or decades after your miscarriage, you might find yourself wondering who that person would have been. You might have gone on to have rainbow babies biologically or found your family through adoption. You might still wonder about one of the worst days of your life. Right now, you need to find a way to make meaning out of what happened to you and your child.
Many women experience deep grief that is never truly honored after miscarriage. Many women experience anger at, feel betrayed by, or even feel ashamed of their bodies for miscarrying. Some women experience miscarriage as a trauma, and need specialized treatment to come home again to their bodies.
Whether you have lost one pregnancy or suffered through recurrent losses, whether your miscarriage occurred one day or 25 years ago, whether you were supported at the time or not, you may be called to honor this experience now.
