Extra Help After a Miscarriage

One of the difficult aspects of miscarriage is how the outside world appears to operate normally when your heart aches for your little one and all of the experiences you never had the chance to share.

In fact, up to half of the women who miscarry experience depression. This makes it all the more important to take the time to grieve. Give yourself permission to feel everything that you’re feeling and honor your child in a way that feels meaningful to you. Some like to grieve alone, others like to grieve with friends and loved ones, and others still get miscarriage tattoos to honor their loss. There’s no right or wrong response or timeline you should stick to. If you need additional support coping with your loss, please look into our support options.

While our main point here in this article was to introduce you to some of our favorite miscarriage quotes to help you on the emotional side we also want to touch on some serious medical issues for those who may need to seek additional help. While suffering one or two miscarriages is certainly painful, it isn’t necessarily a medical concern as roughly 1 in 4 or 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage. However, those who have suffered many losses could likely be diagnosed with what is medically referred to as recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL). RPL is a serious medical condition that requires the attention of a fertility specialist coupled with IVF and Genetic Testing or Reproductive Immunology and thus urge those who have suffered many losses to seek help from specialists like those here at CNY.
