Tips To Make The Coping With Miscarriage Easier
Miscarriage is for most women a tragedy. The intensity of the depression following differs from one woman to another depending on the emotional bounding they had with the unborn child. It is not abnormal for a transitional period of up to 6 weeks to pass before the depression eases. Coping with miscarriage is anything but simple, but it can be done.
The most important thing you must realize is the fact that miscarriage is not the end of the world, nor does it mean that you are infertile. Statistics show that 9 out of ten women manage to give birth to a healthy child after having a miscarriage. Acknowledge the fact that this was an accident that doesn’t prove anything.
Focus on the future. The feelings of guilt and anger are normal, but try to project the simple fact that you will be able to be a mother if you wish to. Although there are some factors that can trigger a miscarriage, most of them occur due to genetic defects. These do not mean that you are genetically defective though. The genetic heritage that you pass on to your child is more or less random. When certain combination appear, miscarriage appears. It is more or less a lottery, but one at which you have some very high chance of winning. You have known the dark side of this lottery, but remember that you may very well win in the future and have quite a good chance to do so.
Don’t be afraid to talk. Share your burden with your family or your husband so they can help you. Psychological therapy is also very effective in coping with miscarriage. Keep in mind to give yourself some time. Nobody expects you to simply flush this memory. Express your grief, shed some tears if it makes you feel better.
Take a break. I know that your first instinct will be to jump right ahead in your working pattern. Coping with miscarriage doesn’t go this way. The first thing you must do is acknowledge that something terrible happened and deal with it. Explore your feelings and understand what happened to you.
What Happens Next?
As part of the healing process and the general coping with miscarriage it is for the best that you play all your cards right, prior to attempting another pregnancy. As a rule of thumb it is unwise to attempt another one too soon, let several months pass, so you can let your body and your mind heal. Also it wouldn’t be a bad idea to make a complete series of medical checkups to find exactly (if possible) why the miscarriage happened. I said “if possible”, because there are quite a large number of miscarriages with no apparent reason. Also try to do some careful planning and adjust your diet to remove all the toxic elements from it prior to getting pregnant again.
