Dear mom who has had a miscarriage,
First of all I want you to know its not your fault. I know you’ve probably heard that before. You’ve probably told yourself before too. But I am am sure a small part of you thinks you did something wrong.
I will never know exactly how you feel since I’ve never had a miscarriage myself. And selfishly I am so glad I never have. But every mother has her own path to walk and her own trials on her journey.
Even though I never experienced a miscarriage, it is something I worried about every day for each of my three pregnancies. I think the third was the worst because I was spinning that wheel of uncertainty for the third time. I had been lucky for the first two. Part of me is always waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Even though I never experienced it myself, I know you must be broken. You had started to imagine what your life as this baby’s mother would be like … And it will never happen. Not only do you mourn for the baby you lost, you mourn the life you will never live.
I don’t know what to say to you. Since I am better with written words, I wrote you this letter.
I don’t know how to help you. But I know you need me right now. Maybe more than you can say or more than you even know. You need someone to say
It will be ok.
It’s not your fault.
You will heal.
It’s ok to mourn.
It’s ok to remember.
And I am here for you. I am here, silently holding out my hands and sharing my strength.
