Recently, a dear friend had a miscarriage and her and her husband's strength was astonishing to me. This article brought tears to my eyes and strengthened my belief in this community. None of us should feel alone on this journey.
" As many as 15 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. That amounts to hundreds of thousands of miscarriages in America each year."
Here are a couple of passages from the article -
"Miscarrying at nine weeks, I didn’t feel entitled to the absolute devastation I felt. I was not able to attempt getting pregnant again; I didn’t have the fortitude to risk that horrific pain a second time.”
"This was the ‘me too’ moment of my life. I have had several miscarriages, all very early, and the number of women who said ‘me too’ was staggering. It is just not spoken about.”
May all of our hearts be open, even when they are broken.
