In brief: Grieving

A miscarriage to many women is the same as a death of a child and especially a dream. The emotional impact is vast and can be long lasting.
As care givers we need to allow adequate time for grieving.

In brief: A Miscarriage is a

difficult experience for the majority of mothers and fathers because it is a significant loss - the pregnancy represented a life that was coming into the world.
That being the case, feelings of depression, tearfulness, and withdrawing might occur. There might also be a fear of getting pregnant again. Its a great idea for both partners to speak with a therapist about their feelings.
