014: Overcoming the Emotional Pain of Miscarriage

I fell in love with you in my womb. Now I carry you in my heart instead of my arms

As mums, miscarriage has probably touched our lives in some way.

One in four women suffer miscarriage, probably more. So if you haven’t experienced miscarriage yourself, chances are, you have a friend or relation that has.

I’ve had two miscarriages, both at opposite ends of the pain and suffering scale. The first was horrific, and the second, much less so. These words ring so true.

“I fell in love with you in my womb. Now I carry you in my heart instead of my arms”

I write through bleary eyes, even though it happened eight years ago.

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about our experiences of miscarriage which we hope will help you, or someone you know, through it.

You’ll always wonder who your baby would have been, but my sincere hope is that this will support you in your healing.
