Continuing the Conversation

I want to keep sharing other people’s stories or articles from around the internet this year, so here are three new posts to share.

8 Ways to support a woman after she’s had a miscarriage

Post from a WordPress blog written by a Catholic priest, Fr Michael Rennier. It’s good advice and a great post to share with others.

Miscarriages are common. But at work, a culture of silence keeps women quiet

An interesting article from CNN about women in the workplace who have miscarriages. I was very lucky that I had such supportive and understanding bosses during all of my pregnancy loss, but it doesn’t seem to be the norm in most situations.

Recovering From Miscarriage: More Than Physical

Article from US News and World Report that discusses the emotional side of pregnancy loss. I like that the article encourages therapy as a way to process. I see a therapist and highly recommend it to anyone, but especially when navigating the grief of pregnancy loss.

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?
