I want to continue sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet, so here are three new voices to share.
5 things I always tell new loss Mom’s – I’ve been following Crystal for a while. She shares the stories of many loss moms, but I really liked this particular post. It’s a great reminder about the realities of recovery and grief.
James Van Der Beek On Miscarriage: ‘Let’s Wipe All Blame Off The Table’ – Apparently, Van Der Beek and his wife have endured three miscarriages. He writes a touching post on his Instagram which is shared in this post.
This Is What It’s Like Before The Rainbow – This was hard for me to read because I have felt a lot of these feelings, had a lot of these experiences. I didn’t have this exact experience because my OB clinic was a lot more supportive. I think that some people, in a hope to lift up a loss mom will remind them of the possibility of a rainbow baby, but that isn’t always the outcome for every woman. It’s important to recognize the reality of the present loss when it’s happening and the grief that the mom and dad will go through.
If you have never experienced pregnancy loss or infertility, I can guarantee there is someone in your life who has. While the above stories may not be the same experiences for everyone, they can definitely open that window to more understanding and empathy for what everyone goes through. And for those of you who are in the midst of these unknowns or losses, you are not alone. May these words uplift and encourage you today.
Do you have any posts or articles that have touched you or compelled you to share?
