My wife Amanda and I have endured the devastation of miscarriage on four occasions. It is not something you ever recover from emotionally and the support of the Miscarriage Association has helped us both tremendously.
We need to speak to make sense of our lives, our experience. And sometimes we need to say the unspeakable – to break the power of feeling hurt and lost and a failure – so that we can go on.
Everyone who has experienced miscarriage directly or at close quarters knows that the loss of the hope embodied in a child is a bereavement. And loss takes time to come to terms with.
That’s why the Miscarriage Association means a lot to so many of us.
