Talk about it with people you love and trust
Sometimes, talking about a traumatic experience helps you deal with it better. In the case of a miscarriage, it can help if you go through your feelings with your partner, your close friends, or your family members.
This is not only cathartic, but it also helps you better process your grief and helps you move on from what happened.
If you’re not yet ready to talk about it with other people, then you can write down your feelings and whatever might be on your mind. Having a diary can also help, especially since it allows you to keep track of your feelings every day, and how you’re coping with what happened.
Give it time
There’s a saying that goes, “Time heals all wounds,” and the same is true for people who have had a miscarriage. There’s no need to rush the grieving process, and you should not be in a hurry to feel “better.” Take things one day at a time, and don’t worry if it takes you months or even years before you can move on4.
Commemorate your baby
Making a reminder of your loss might seem counterintuitive, but keeping the memory of your baby alive can help give you some closure. You can have a small ceremony with some friends and loved ones, you can also write a letter to your baby, letting them know about your feelings.
It doesn’t have to be anything grand, just a small gathering, or even just you and your partner can commemorate your baby5.
