A miscarriage, either your own or that of a loved one, can be a very painful experience resulting
in intense emotions and grief. It may also be confusing, as this loss can be quite sudden and leave those involved wondering
what to do.
Most people think a miscarriage is rare, and many believe
that if a woman loses a pregnancy that she brought it upon herself. Neither of those things is true, but the enduring beliefs
cause great pain to women and their partners." It's irrational, but there is a deep shame attached to not being able
to carry a baby to term...I don't want another baby, I want THIS baby." "It's bazarre that the topic is so
taboo." "I felt alone until I realized there is this big, secret miscarriage club - one that nobody wants to be
a member of - and when I realized it existed, I felt angry that no one told me they had active membership."
Miscarriage affects ALL families members in different way and at different times: Mothers,
Fathers, Siblings, Children, Grandparents
