    Recovering from miscarriage and stillbirth

    I personally know a few mothers who have undergone a miscarriage or a stillbirth. It pains me to see them suffer the trauma. What advice could you give them to recover quickly?

    motherlywidow,

    When I went through a miscarriage I needed time to re-coupe physically and mentally. I needed someone to support me as much as possible. Cook and basic house keeping for a few days. Offer me glasses of water every so often. Make sure that you take life slow for a few days before jumping back into your regular routine.

    Im sure other mums who have been through this common issue can offer more advice.

    Blessings

    Hello, sunnymumof5

    Hello, sunnymumof5. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my query. I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage experience. You're right. As they say, "Time heals all wounds." I guess each mom just has to find her own way/s of recovering from the pain. Also, good company is a good medicine. I'll make sure to offer that to my friends.

    Warm regards,

    Hello,

    I think the loss of any baby is a hugely difficult experience to go through and a time when we need our friends and family more than ever. However, a stillbirth can often result in much more grief and trauma than a miscarriage. It is more likely that parents will need specialist counselling and the support of child bereavement charities following a stillbirth.

    There is an article here about remembering our lost babies: Losing Temperance.

    Warm wishes,
    LJ

    Hello, LJ. Yes, you're right. Only the support of family and friends can heal the pain of a miscarriage or stillbirth. Counselling, I believe, is also helpful

    I have also heard families who have lost a baby describe their lives being changed forever and learning to live with the pain but everything being different from this point on.

    It's the hardest thing in the world,

    I agree with you ljmarsden,

    Stillbirth requires a different recovery approach and has a deeper level of loss.
    Thanks for the great article.

    Blessings
