I am 1 in 4. October is Miscarriage Awareness Month

by Ellen M. DuBois on 09/29/18

I am 1 in 4. October is Miscarriage Awareness Month. I've been 1 in 4 for a long time and the love for the baby I carried in my womb but never got to hold stays with me. I am 1 in 4 women who suffered the physical, emotional and spiritual fallout after miscarriage. It's no easy task trying to put the pieces together after losing your baby to miscarriage. I am 1 in 4 who cried the tears many couldn't understand. I felt alone, like my grief and loss didn't matter. I am 1 in 4 who felt the pain of grieving the baby I loved with everything I had- the baby I had plans, wishes, hopes and dreams for and that grief consumed me for quite a while. I am 1 in 4 who wanted to scream to the world, "I just had a miscarriage. Can anybody hear me?" I am 1 in 4 who felt not many heard me. I am 1 in 4 who bought a baby outfit and never got to see my baby wear it. I'm 1 in 4 who tried to hold back her tears when shopping for other people's baby showers and trying my best to attend them without completely losing it. I am 1 in 4 who never dreamed there'd be a miscarriage awareness month and a remembrance day (PAILRD) and I'm 1 in 4 who is so grateful there is. I am 1 in 4 who healed over time but never, ever forgot the baby I loved with all my heart- and never got to hold. I am 1 in 4 and together, we are many.

Welcome to MiscarriageHelp.com. My name is Ellen DuBois and I am deeply sorry for your loss. MiscarriageHelp.com is a support site for women and their families who have suffered the pain, loss and grief after miscarriage. I respond personally to each email and post and have been doing so since 2006. It's an outreach to me. I try to connect and give whatever support I can to those who have walked the often lonely road after miscarriage. Why? I don't want anyone to feel as alone as I did over twenty years ago after I miscarried. I'm not a doctor. 
I'm just a woman who's lived through it and am here to listen, share and provide a space for you to share with each other, too.- Love & comfort to you, Ellen
