Dealing With The Miscarriage In The Right Way – Find Your Own Way
In cases of grief, those affected always find their own ways to deal with what has happened. Some crawl away on the sofa, others go out partying to distract themselves, and still, others simply carry on as before. Do not judge yourself by what others say. After a miscarriage, each woman must know for herself what is best for her.
Friends And Family
In a difficult time, friends and family are our support. They provide comfort, distraction and are there for you when you need them.
It is important not to hide during this time. Talk about what happened. Repressing what happened is never a long-term solution. This doesn’t mean you have to keep talking about it, but friends and family should know how you’re doing so they can best address your needs.
When To Seek Professional Advice?
Family and friends can be a great support. However, many may not understand the loss you have suffered. They have not yet been able to relate to the baby. That’s why a miscarriage is often dismissed as something normal. It is. A lot of women have miscarriages. But it is still a great loss for you. If you also encounter this lack of understanding, it can help to talk to a therapist about it. Pro Familia can also help you deal with the situation. Usually, one appointment is enough, where you can talk about everything that is on your mind.
The advantage of experts and doctors is that they can answer all your questions at the same time, such as why the miscarriage happened or what it means for a possible new pregnancy.
After The Miscarriage – Successfully Reshaping The Future
A miscarriage doesn’t just mean the loss of the baby. The future as you planned it is gone for now. This is a big challenge for many couples. Friends often try to downplay the loss with phrases like, “You already have a child”, or “Then you’ll just try again”. These are exactly the phrases parents don’t want to hear after a miscarriage. So take the time to grieve. The future can wait. Only when you are ready should you discuss with your partner what your future together should look like – without pressure!
With these tips, I would like to tell you one thing above all: You decide how you can best deal with the miscarriage. At the same time, you should also think about what can help you to feel better again. Stay strong!
