What I Want You to Know About Miscarriage

Today’s episode of The Wellness Crossing is dedicated to Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month.

Two years ago my husband and I found ourselves with a surprise on our hands: we were pregnant.

It wasn’t planned and it wasn’t the best timing, but we were thrilled.

And for those few weeks that we knew we were pregnant we felt so much happiness and joy and excitement. Because in a season where my health felt anything but good, this news of a baby was a gift of light.

But as the title of this post prepared you, we didn’t have a happy ending to our pregnancy. Around 9-10 weeks our baby stopped developing and I miscarried during week 12.

It was an experience I’d seen others walk through. One I ached to not be a part of my own story. Yet there I was, losing my baby.

Miscarriage, like any loss, is a pain you only know if you’ve been there. And there are a lot of misconceptions about what it’s like and how to be there for someone who’s navigating this experience.

So today I decided I’d open up about my story. It’s raw, honest, and deeply personal. Yet I felt it was important to talk about this topic that so many would rather skim over.

Because it’s often in the telling of our stories that change happens. Perhaps more people become softer when comforting someone who’s lost their baby. Or another mother feels less alone in their grief.

None of us are exempt from feeling pain. So today as you listen to my story, may you be reminded that, yes: our experiences are altogether unique. But they are also what can bring us together and remind us we are never alone.
