Miscarriage and pregnancy loss

Miscarriage and pregnancy loss

Miscarriage, pregnancy loss, stillbirth and infant loss are among the most difficult experiences a parent can go through. It shatters your world, changes your perspective of life and death and might make you feel lonely, hopeless and lost.

Love is not measured in how many weeks you were pregnant. The moment you know about the existence of that baby, you might feel excitement, fear, ambivalence and love altogether. You connect with this little person, even without having knowing him or her. Your future doesn’t look the same anymore. You see and imagine yourself with that baby in your life.

Pregnancy loss can make you question yourself, your beliefs and your dreams. Many moms feel guilty and alone. Society tends to minimize the loss in an attempt to make you feel better and hopeful. Friends and family don’t know what to say or how to help.

Most parents who have had a pregnancy loss and start therapy feel lost in life on some level, unsure of how to find their way. Some may feel guilty, ashamed or judged. Some others may feel angry. Some parents feel scared about trying to get pregnant again.

The purpose of therapy is not to cure the grief. Your grief is a process that is unique and should be respected. Your grief is love for that baby. Your grief is part of your story and who you are.

The purpose of therapy is to provide a safe and accepting space for you to grieve, honor your baby and find meaning in the process. Therapy helps you find your way back, even when you are not the same person anymore. Therapy is to help you move forward with the pain when you are ready. Grief is not something you just “move on”. Is a process and you learn to make room for it while at the same time you walk through life, and love yourself and the ones around you.
