How To Move On After Miscarriage

After miscarriage, a woman and a man go through a lot of difficult emotions and feelings. They have to deal with the fact that they have lost a child. Also, very often, a woman will feel guilty. Perhaps she didn't recognize the miscarriage symptoms and thinks she should have or could have done something. Also, people around the couple will generally have well-meant words of advice that can come across as quite harsh and hurtful. After a miscarriage, it is possible to move on. Feelings of loneliness, misunderstanding and depression are common symptoms after miscarriage. The reason for this is two-fold. Firstly, you are grieving over a lost child. Secondly, the pregnancy hormones you were carrying in your body suddenly plummet, making you experience what is known as the baby blues. All of this is normal, but knowing that it’s a normal feeling won’t make the sadness go away. After miscarriage, you need to find it within yourself to accept what has happened and to give it a place inside your heart and your life. You have lost a child, yes, but you have also experienced a pregnancy. That is something to be grateful for. You have been able to create a life; the world just wasn't ready for that life yet. Once you have experience miscarriage symptoms, you need to think of positive images that help you feel better. For many, symptoms after miscarriage are relieved by thinking of angels, picturing the child up there. If that works for you, then allow yourself to get solace from that. Whether you want to go to church or whether you want to be surrounded by friends and family, or whether you simply want to be alone. You need to find out what makes you feel better. A miscarriage is a personal experience and only you can find the best way to get back out of it. Remember, as well, that after a miscarriage, you are able to try again. That doesn't mean you dismiss the child you have lost. We all have an infinite amount of love to give and giving your love to a subsequent child does not mean your love for the child you lost is in anyway diminished. You will never forget but you will be able to find a place for what happened.
