Pregnancy Loss

The loss of a baby can be a devastating experience for you and your partner. It is an emotionally charged time that may take more time to heal emotionally than physically. In addition, couples may feel that friends and family do not fully understand what they are going through.

Pregnancy loss (miscarriage, stillbirth) is far more common than people realize. In fact, one in five to one in ten pregnancies ends in a miscarriage.

Mourning the loss of a baby can be hard work that takes a lot of time and energy. First, to facilitate the healing process it is important to acknowledge the death of the baby as a significant and real loss. Second, it is important to seek the help of loved ones and health professionals when needed. Lastly, remember that you and your partner may have different reactions to this experience and may cope with the feelings of loss differently as well.
