10 June

They say, you feel

They sympathise. . .
I’m sorry
There’s no heartbeat
You’re having a miscarriage

You feel . . .
Pain, upset, anger, emptiness, numbness, sadness, failure, guilt, grief, loneliness

They state . . .
It’s quite common
It happens to 1 in 4 women
At least you know you can conceive

You feel . . .
Pain, upset, anger, emptiness, numbness, sadness, failure, guilt, grief, loneliness

They reassure . . .
It’s not your fault
Everything happens for a reason
There’s nothing else you could have done

You feel . . .
Pain, upset, anger, emptiness, numbness, sadness, failure, guilt, grief, loneliness

They ask . . .
Are you ok?
Is there anything we can do?
Do you think you will try again?

You feel . . .
Pain, upset, anger, emptiness, numbness, sadness, failure, guilt, grief, loneliness

You say but we feel.
