Supporting a friend through Miscarriage

angelAccording to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, miscarriage is the most common type of pregnancy loss. Unfortunately, studies reveal that anywhere from 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage.

I was recently interviewed by Jennifer Meer, a journalist for Mom 365- an online community for mothers, about ways to support a friend through miscarriage. Below, is the link for the article, detailing 10 essential ways to support women who have lost a pregnancy during this very difficult time.

    I recently supported my sister who went through a miscarriage at week 16 of her pregnancy. This was very unexpected especially since she has had a healthy pregnancy three years ago. Needless to say, she was devastated. I really appreciate your advice in the article regarding allowing women who miscarried to have their emotions. Often my sister hears people saying – cheer up- it will happen for you (a successful pregnancy) and she becomes so saddened and angry. I have found that the recommendation to “mirror” the emotions she experiences is so valuable. Great article!
