Miscarriage & Infant Loss
Imagining how to go on after losing a pregnancy or an infant may be incomprehensible. This is likely one of the most emotionally devastating things you’ve ever experienced. Your friends, family and even your partner may not know how to embrace or support you.
Whether you’ve had one miscarriage or multiple losses, it can be a consuming process – physically and emotionally. There’s the immediate shock, then sadness, anger and longing. You may feel:
- Wondering how or why this has happened
- Out of control and incredibly vulnerable
- Worry may cloud your next steps, as you try again, or search for answers
- It’s not uncommon to feel defective, angry and jealous, or hopeless as people around you become pregnant
Although how you feel about miscarriage or stillbirth may heal with time, research shows that early psychological intervention can effectively decrease emotional distress, depression and anxiety in the first year after miscarriage or stillbirth. We can work together to decrease the severity of the pain you are experiencing and heal from this experience. You are not alone.
