A Story for Women Who Have Miscarried

The story posted below uses images and words to help illustrate feelings of sorrow and confusion experienced by many women after a miscarriage. In my work with women and couples, I too have heard similar descriptions of feelings of loss, sorrow, and anger. Despite coming from people from different cultures and backgrounds, many personal stories of loss contain similarities.

Here is one example from the story.

Excerpt from the story:

The media tends to depict pregnancy as a miraculous time during which giving up the occasional glass of wine is the worst thing that could happen. And for the most part, it ignores one devastating, but very common, potential aspect of pregnancy: miscarriage.

About 10% to 25% of all known pregnancies end in miscarriage, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. But the prevalence of miscarriages doesn’t mean that there is space to talk about it.

While the internet has certainly given women a place to discuss many aspects of motherhood, oftentimes, there’s a taboo around the topic of pregnancy loss. Women who miscarry often feel withdrawn and depressed, or worried that the people around them won’t know how to react or what to say. They might even experience problems in their relationships as a result of a miscarriage.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up 14 heartbreaking secrets, shared on the anonymous secret app, Whisper, from women who’ve dealt with miscarriages. The emotions described range from shame to guilt to embarrassment, but all of these secrets showcase the need to open up the conversation about this difficult subject.

Just know: If you’re struggling through a miscarriage, you’re not alone — and there’s help out there if you need it.

 No matter how long or hard the winter, spring will come again

 Unfurl from Bud to Blossom 

lovely koruKoru is a word from the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand, it means loop. The Koru is associated with fresh starts, rejuvenation, renewal, and the cycle of rebirth, seen in nature each year at springtime. The coiled green fiddlehead is one of the first plants to emerge from the ground when winter comes to an end. Spirals and loops are found in nature and in the artworks of carvings, paintings, jewellery, and design details. The carved coil shape is also seen in the upper portion of a cello or violin. The shape is found in the spiral of seashells, and in the cosmos itself. The Koru is often seen in body art, personal tattoos with a number of possible versions chosen by women and men for its special symbolism and what it represents to a person.   

Spring Always follows Winter

The Koru reminds us that no matter how long or dark the winter has been spring will follow with its potential for revitalization, new growth, and a renewed sense of peace and optimism. As mere mortals, we humans are sensitive, sometimes in life distressful circumstances bring us down. Winter can feel long and isolating. And for some, “Winter” can be experienced not only as an environmental season but also as an internal cold dark place where life and interpersonal concerns dim the light… The aim of my work is to provide soothing compassionate care, helping to illuminate a path up and out from the darkness of winter. The Koru’s meaning also includes protection, peace, optimism, vibrancy, and health.

My intention with this blog/website, as with my work, is to help people feel better. Together we find insight and peaceful solutions to complex feelings and situations that arise from personal and interpersonal experiences, and challenges.

Personal awareness, improved wellness, and a greater sense of inner freedom result from this work. Heart to heart compassionate listening is at the core of this work along with skills honed from three decades of counseling, group work, exploration, educational presentations, and writing. 

Terra, thank you! You set me on the path to safety and recovery. The hours we spent together have stayed with me. I hold the work we did as a sacred gift. I am able to access your healing insights, words and strength whenever I need them now. Your calming tone and ability to help me keep me going, keep me strong. I feel nourished by your mentoring and your tremendous encouragement after I came so close to giving up and to death. You were my solid ground, you were crystal clear in all the ways I needed. Your words, compassion, and strength gave me the life saving hope I needed to continue on when I hit bottom. I am so deeply grateful to you. I feel free now. Thank you so much. T.E. AZ, USA
