After the death of my nephew, I really felt that there were many parents out there consumed in their grief, alone and misunderstood.
There were couples who had each lost a unique child in different, personal circumstances, yet were feeling the same way because of the lack of understanding around them.
I didn’t know how to tackle this problem and provide them with the support and relief that they so desperately needed – but I knew it had to be done.
Everyone around me – and no doubt, everyone around you - always says that grief is something personal, that people would get over their grief - that time heals all wounds. And miscarriage is a subject not immune to these opinions either unfortunately.
In fact, some people say it is better to not even talk about miscarriage, almost like it had never happened – just move on and forget.
Some people say it will be ok because you can try again or have another child – not understanding that nothing and no one can replace the child you have lost.
There are so many different opinions and judgements about miscarriage, particularly in some communities and cultures – about how to talk about it, how not to talk about it, the supposed causes and what it means for you, the parent.
And amongst all this is also how we should treat parents who have suffered a miscarriage.
But none of these opinions are right.
None of them understand what the reality of miscarriage is.
Did you know that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage each year in the UK?
Just think about that.
That’s a quarter of all conceptions, all those hopes and dreams for a healthy, happy baby, shattered.
Sadly, you are not alone and miscarriage is far too common and far too misunderstood.
A miscarriage is so shocking and the emotions that follow are like no other.
You can feel wounded, betrayed, guilty and angry and so consumed by sorrow and grief.
We know this – we understand that desolation and despair.
Whether your miscarriage happened in those early few weeks or later in your pregnancy – it makes no difference to the severity of what you personally experienced.
You lost a child and with that loss comes a wave of grief that can feel never-ending and a realisation of a loss of control.
The information I am going to share with you can change your life, the life you are living right now which is filled with pain and confusion.
It can give you life again after the miscarriage of your much longed for baby – a life that doesn’t forget them but a life that honours their soul.
You may wonder how or why this is possible – or even if you can or should look forward to a brighter day once again. But for every moment that goes past without the right support in place for you, without someone to talk to who truly understands your miscarriage experience, is a moment of intense grief controlling you that you do not need to suffer.
We know your heart has been broken – we know that the shock has left you reeling and with questions of why, why did this happen?
Your baby was your baby and this wasn’t ‘meant’ to happen, it wasn’t meant to be this way – we understand that.
But we also know that just because they were not born does not mean that they did not exist or that the loss of them is any less significant.
And we know that we can help you reach a place where you will one day be able to be at peace with your loss.
The sorrow and upset you are feeling right now no doubt leaves you confused, angry and scared.
Scared that things are out of your control and scared that something like this could happen again.
It leaves you feeling frozen in the moment while the world continues around you and no-one can see your pain.
We know that processing your grief so that you can feel different to this, feel better, is so important. Even though it may seem hard now, if you don’t take action, if you don’t allow us to help you, that could be your reality always.
