The experience of miscarriage can be heartbreaking, and the grief that comes with it is deeply personal. No two people, losses, or recoveries are the same, and what you or a loved one might need—physically and emotionally—can change by the day, if not the minute.
We understand there is nothing we can offer you to overcome the grief you’re experiencing, but there are products you can use (or purchase for a loved one suffering from a loss) that may aid in the transition and help your heart to heal. The mental aspects and physical demands of recovery after miscarriage are all important side effects to address, so that you can move toward a holistic recovery. And while we hope you’ll never have to use any of these products for this intended purpose, the difficult reality is that miscarriage happens, perhaps more often than we even realize. Up to 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, with some research suggesting that the number of early losses is likely closer to 30%.
These figures aren’t just numbers; knowing you are not alone in this situation is important. Your loss is valid. Your feelings, be it devastation, confusion, anger, numbness, or a combination of these and more, matter. So give yourself the tools to heal, take the time you deserve, and accept the support of family and friends who love you.
