Coping with loss after miscarriage is never going to be easy. Neither for mum or dad. It’s often the way, however, that dad can be forgotten about. Dads often think that they have to keep strong and keep going, yet actually, we want to grieve and deal with our emotions too.
We lost our first baby at 12 weeks and it was terrible. We want to break the taboo around miscarriage though and so I shared my innermost feelings about my experience: The Story of a Dads Miscarriage. I’d like to invite you to read my story.
People are different and deal with life’s twists and turns differently. But one thing that everyone has in common is that no matter which route you take through life, there are times when you feel close to the edge of the mountain or at the bottom of the valley or lost in the middle of no-where. You don’t know how to feel and how to act and in my experience, our miscarriage was one of those times. Almost a year on from our miscarriage the memories are still vivid and what I can’t get my head around is that you can’t be prepared for it. Until you experience it, learn from it and move on you simply don’t know how to cope. This graphic isn’t designed to necessarily give answers because I don’t think there are any but rather offer a support and acknowledgment of how you might be feeling.
