A Mother Mourning A Child

Mourning:an expression of, or time of grieving that follows a loved one's death or other serious loss


I describe my miscarriage asthe death of my first childbecause that is what it was to me and that is what I felt. 


I felt death
Following my miscarriage I expected that my time of mourning would end

When it didn't I was confused -I didn't understand why.

I was struggling so much to "get over it" and unfortunately I became deeply depressed at the start of my current pregnancy because of that. I wanted so badly to "move on," and when I didn't -I became disappointed in myself.

-That was how I coped...by shutting all emotional connection off to my baby and to others around me. 

A friend questioned me about my distant presence and I was embarrassed to admit I was still mourning my first child
