dealing with miscarriage

‘The word ‘miscarriage’ sounds like the woman miss-carried and she’s to blame for her loss. And you know what, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.’: After miscarriage, woman says ‘there is pain because there is and was love’

“I was pregnant for a few short days with baby #4 only to have that ‘PREGNANT’ reading turn to ‘NOT PREGNANT’ in a matter of 72 hours. I had gotten excited. I had told the kids. When a woman miscarries, she will never not be carrying the pain of that loss within her. I beg you, don’t dare miss a chance at being there for her. It was me. It could be you. Or it might be her.”

‘I cried and cried as the nurse placed my helpless, tiny baby in a plastic take-out container. We left empty-handed, no physical proof our baby ever existed.’: Mom of angel baby urges ‘miscarriage matters’ after hospital negligence

“We were given no condolences. The doctor went straight to paperwork. I was nearly pleading for his attention now: ‘This life was important to me!’ He looked up, straight-faced and insincere. ‘Oh…sorry for your loss.’ I thought I’d at least get my baby back for a burial or cremation. The nurse broke the news over the phone. The remains of my teeny, tiny one would simply be destroyed.”

‘What’s wrong?’ My tattoo artist emerged from the back, visibly shaking, crying. ‘I just HAD to take in this moment.’: Mom loses twins, ‘uncommon’ first names combine to match name of tattoo artist’s late grandmother

“He’d gone back to trace the footprints of my babies, Leonor and Buchanan, both stillbirths. I was wondering what was taking so long, and started to worry my tattoo couldn’t be done. ‘I don’t want you to think I’m crazy,’ he said. ‘But my grandmother’s name was Leonor Buchanan. She just passed.’ I looked at him in complete shock.”
