No matter what the reasons are for a pregnancy loss, it is almost always overwhelming. Â Feeling of bereavement and grief is natural. Grieving process is different for each one; you may find yourself in turmoil emotionally and physically or completely shocked and numb. Please allow yourself to feel what you feel, endure the pain the way you need to.
Whilst you are mourning and coping the loss, remember itâ€™s not only you, but your partner as well who is coping in his own manner. You both have the right to grieve as much or as little as you want. However, sharing your feelings openly with each other, rather than trying to shut each other out, can help you both heal together.
Depression and anger might keep you locked away from your friends, but understand that it is alright to share your deepest and darkest despair with your most trustworthy girl-friend. Â You need your friend with whom you can talk and cry.
Depending up on how far into the pregnancy the loss happened, your medical practitioner will give you medication and support that your body requires for the healing process to be complete. For the emotional part, give yourself a break and treat yourself kindly; punishing yourself will not help in any manner.
