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.
New Book Explores the Unique Experience of Grieving Miscarriage as a Couple
Another book is coming out to help couples! The couple who wrote this particular book experienced both infertility and pregnancy loss, but also have four healthy boys, so their perspective is interesting. They are also Catholic so that plays into the book as well.
This particular article was written by a woman who experienced a miscarriage while her husband was out of town (and out of the country) on business. Such a good, honest article about the marital relationship around miscarriage.
What I Wish Others Knew About Secondary Infertility
Scary Mommy always has some pretty good articles about infertility and pregnancy loss. This one is Amira Posner’s journey having a child and then unexpectedly experiencing secondary infertility, IUDs and IVF. Great post.
From IVF to Miscarriages: 5 Ways We Can Talk About Infertility
This article was inspired by the recent book, Becoming, by Michelle Obama. It outlines ways that pregnancy loss and infertility need to become part of the open conversation and why. Really great article.
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.
