Coping with Miscarriage: What you should know

Losing a baby after conception is always hard. According to studies, about 1 in 5 pregnancies end in a miscarriage. The most important thing to know is that you’re not alone. Many women don’t talk about miscarriage probably because their loss feels too personal or they may be worried about social taboos attached to it. Taking care of your physical, and most importantly, your emotional health is crucial after you’ve had a miscarriage.

If you or someone you know has suffered a pregnancy loss, here are some things you should know:

  1. Dealing with Guilt

Always remember that miscarriage is something that happened to you – not something that you did. Often, a miscarriage is not a result of your actions. There’s very little about pregnancy loss that women are in control of. Losing a baby after conception can happen due to a variety of unknown and unpredictable factors. The most important thing to do is to avoid blaming yourself. Treat yourself with kindness and don’t be hard on yourself.

  1. Helping your partner cope

Don’t expect your partner to deal with a miscarriage in the same way as you do. Their reaction to the loss may be very different and surprising, and there is a chance that you may not feel good about it. Remember that everyone deals with grief in their own way. If you find that your partner isn’t crying or feeling depressed, remind yourself that he’s probably dealing with things in a different way.

  1. Getting a closure

When you experience a miscarriage, it may be tough to move on emotionally. There isn’t a right or wrong way to get a closure. Remember that you have to find your own way of getting a closure to move on. Don’t compare yourself with others – what you experience and feel is very different from anyone else. Try and do whatever feels right, like having a small get together with friends, writing down a letter or anything that you feel like.

  1. When to try again

A lot of couples often wonder about when they can try to conceive again after a miscarriage. It is important that you give yourself enough time to recover from the pregnancy loss before you begin again. The time between a miscarriage and trying to conceive again depends on your physical and emotional factors. If you feel scared about losing a child again, it is probably a good idea to wait a little longer. Get the right support to get you through this. Support could include your friends and family, or even professionals. You could also meet support group for women.

You’ll know when you’re ready to try again. Go into it with a positive mindset and know that no matter what, you’re doing your best. If you seek any medical or emotional help during this time, see our experienced doctors at KIMS Cuddles.

Tips for dealing with postpartum vaginal discharge

Lochia, or the vaginal discharge that a woman’s body produces following childbirth, is expected to last for a few days to weeks after delivery. After birth, the rapid flow of blood and mucus begins. For the first 2-3 days after birth, the bleeding will be severe and contain blood clots. However, after a few days, the flow will gradually decrease to spotting before stopping entirely.
