Miscarriage or abortion
Miscarriage and abortion are the two emotional experiences women often grieve in silence.
Miscarriages often occur in the early stages of pregnancy, before a woman’s support network is aware of their pregnancy. This can lead to feelings of isolation and many women struggle with coming to terms with their loss. Miscarriage loss, like any loss of a child, can cause a lot of sadness and strain within relationships.
Despite the stigma of abortion, the grief women can feel after abortion is real. They can have some regret or emotional conflict due to their decision.
Talking about your experiences with a non-judgemental third party may help you process your feelings.
