We lost a baby this year. That awful word – miscarriage. There, I’ve said it.
That taboo thing that nobody talks about but so many people seem to have a story about when you dig deeper. Why do people not talk about miscarriage?
In truth, I don’t like the term ‘miscarriage’ at all. It prompts thoughts of ‘how did I mis-carry?’ and ‘what did I do wrong?’ Thoughts like these haunt enough when it happens, so I rarely used the term when finally opening up to friends. To me, we lost a baby, that was how it felt and that was how I explained it.
