1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss. Let me give you a moment to process that... 1 in 4... 25% of pregnancies end in loss.
How many people do you know that has been affected by pregnancy or infant loss? You most likely can't recall 25% of the people in your life telling you that they have.
Unfortunately in our society so many of these parents suffer in silence. There seems to be a stigma behind miscarriage that leaves women wondering what they did wrong? And what could they have done differently? They are afraid to share and concerned of how they will be judged.
How sad and lonely these parents must feel. To feel that your heart is being ripped out and not be able to discuss it.
We must change the way the we approach these losses if healing is to take place. If you have experienced loss please talk about it. Please remember that regardless of the length of time your little one existed on earth, they are special and they are important. You deserve to be surrounded by the love of others and supported through your grieving.
Sharing is processing and processing is healing.
