Miscarriage: I wanted to scream. #miscarriage #repost #blog #miscarriagesupport

by Ellen DuBois on 09/07/17



I think many of you can relate to this. After my miscarriage, I felt like nobody really understood the depth of my loss...how it consumed me. Please take heart. I know the road you're walking and over time, things do get easier. Be as patient with yourself as you can. Allow yourself to feel. While you're going through the worst of it, please know there are people who get it, get you and understand the gravity of your loss. Love and support to you, Ellen


For anyone either living through this now or has lived through life after miscarriage, I am so sorry for your loss.

MiscarriageHelp.com:  The past ten years have been filled with tears, support, empathy, growing and understanding.  A sisterhood of women who've shared the pain of miscarriage has formed and grown in a way only the Internet can provide because of its reach. 

I never dreamed back when this site began that it would grow so exponentially.

I've been honored and am still honored to provide this platform for women, (men, too), to share their feelings after miscarriage. Often times, we feel supported simply by reading the comments made by others. Many times, you feel better by sharing what's been on your mind and heart with others. The act of "letting it out" goes a long way towards helping you heal.

Small steps. One day at a time.

How we grieve and what we experience after miscarriage is as different as we are. Yet, living through such a painful loss connects us. This connection, although we wish we never had to share it, gives us a certain comfort and reassurance. It speaks to your heart saying "You're not alone in this." Believe me, you are not.

That's the reason MiscarriageHelp.com exists and will continue to exist. That's the reason I wrote my book, too. But, there's another reason. I believe writing about my own experience after miscarriage helped me heal. I didn't know it at the time. It was a process. All these years later I see clearly how writing about my own pain, what helped and what didn't was in fact a form of therapy for me. Ten years later, I could probably write from an additional perspective- one with ten more years of growing and learning, sharing and caring.

I am continuing to share many of the comments made at MiscarriageHelp.com over the past ten years. Some date as far back as 2006. As I type this, I feel butterflies in my stomach and a deep feeling of gratitude. I am so thankful for having this site up so I could reach out. I am grateful to each and every one of you who has commented, shared your support or simply stopped by to read the comments here. We have all reached out to each other and to countless others.

To all of you who have experienced the pain of miscarriage, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. - Ellen

Drowning. #miscarriage #miscarriagehelp #miscarriagesupport

by Ellen DuBois on 08/26/17



This quote is from a page in my book. I felt this way for a long time after my miscarriage. To be honest, there are times the feeling creeps up on me- and it's been years. Maybe it's because I never had any more children. Maybe it's because that's the way it is for me. But, I know many women have felt this way after losing their little ones to miscarriage. Although I wrote this years ago, (back in 2006), the feelings remain the same for many. I wish you comfort, love, healing and strength. Please know you are not alone. Love and light to you, Ellen

The Dismissal of Our Very Real Grief #miscarriage #grief

by Ellen DuBois on 08/16/17



"We have all felt the dismissal of our very real grief, and we have all felt alone and isolated because of it."- Ellen DuBois, I Never Held You

"There are so many of us on different paths. We are professionals in the workforce or professional mothers. We are painters and singers. We are caretakers, and we are movie stars. Some of us may have children, while some of us don't. My point is that we all have our own lives, and our diversity is wonderful. The one thing that connects us all is that we are women who experienced a terrible loss that seemed, in many cases, to go unacknowledged by many. We have all felt the dismissal of our very real grief, and we have all felt alone and isolated because of it. We have all wondered what 'might have been' and we have all been caught off guard by powerful emotions resurfacing."- Ellen DuBois from I Never Held You

Miscarriage and Blame. #miscarriage #miscarriagesupport #miscarriagehelp

by Ellen DuBois on 08/16/17



"Acknowledge your pain. Feel it. But please stop blaming yourself, God or anyone else."- Ellen DuBois, I Never Held You

I know after living through a miscarriage and blaming myself, God and anyone else I could think of that I wasn't helping myself. I was hurting myself. I also know it's very easy to wonder if you did anything wrong.

I get how it feels to retrace your footsteps and try to pinpoint the one thing you did that caused such a painful loss. When I couldn't find blame within myself, I questioned God. Why would my happiness be stolen from me? What did I do? Why me? So, if that's where you're at, I really do understand where you're coming from. But, take it from one who has lived it and finally came to a place where I stopped blaming myself: It wasn't your fault and hurting yourself over and over again in an attempt to find an answer just hurts you.

I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I'll be sharing quotes from my book on future posts and I hope you find them helpful. Love and Light, Ellen
