Remember, 1 in 4 women experience a miscarriage. It could be your neighbor. It could be your friend. It could be your sister.
Remember, to most women who lose a pregnancy, that loss isn’t just the loss of a pregnancy. It’s the loss of hopes, of dreams, of the future.
Remember, the best thing you can say to someone who has lost a pregnancy is “I’m so sorry for your loss.” Those words bring comfort. Saying “It was God’s will” or “Maybe you shouldn’t get so excited so early” or “You can have another one”…well, those words just hurt. Those words don’t bring peace to anyone.
Remember, pregnancy loss is not something shameful. We need to talk to each other. We need to support each other. We need to help each other.
Remember…because the parents never forget.
