Personal reflections

In this section of our website, we share personal stories, videos and poems by women and men who have been affected by pregnancy loss.

Reading about others’ experiences of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or molar pregnancy can be reassuring, and may help you feel less alone. However, the experience of pregnancy loss is different for everyone. What the loss of your baby means to you, and how you feel about it, will be shaped by all kinds of things to do with the person you are and your particular circumstances. So, although you will probably find you share a lot with others, it’s important to remember that no one else’s experience of miscarriage will be exactly like yours.

If you would like to submit your own story, in written or video format, to be considered for this section, please email us on
