First Pregnancy Miscarriage

This is a place for us to share our stories. Stories of miscarriage, stillbirth and early infant loss. Together we can loosen the grip of pain on our hearts. Together we can be hopeful.

The topic of miscarriage and infant loss is close to my heart. I’ve long wanted to make a place for us to share our stories. Because our stories are powerful. Our lives are not our own, they are for us to share. Every few weeks I’ll share a new video message with you from a mother who has experienced pregnancy loss. These stories are real and they are full of wisdom… and hope.

This week’s story comes from Carol. She has much to share with us about her experience with first pregnancy miscarriage six years ago. Her journey is a great reminder that miscarriage is not for a day, month, or even a year. It is an experience we carry for a lifetime. Yes, we can be happy again, but we will always carry that place. She also reminds us of the power of sourcing support along the way and what helped her most.

If miscarriage has darkened the door step off your heart, I am so sorry. You have the right to grieve, to question, to scream and shout. Do not let anyone dismiss your pain. It is real and pretending it is not there does not make it go away or do anyone any good.
