Postpartum Grief: What To Expect After Pregnancy Loss
After you go through pregnancy loss, it can feel like you'll never feel like your old self again, and in some ways, you may not want to. Feeling the grief of your loss is an important part of the healing process. Grieving your baby shows that you felt a deep connection to your little one, and pays them the respect that they deserve for sharing their life with you, no matter how short that life was.
Experiencing postpartum grief can be difficult to understand. You may feel like you shouldn't have deep feelings of grief if you weren't far along in your pregnancy or if miscarriage was selective. If you had a still birth or you lost an infant, you may feel that you shouldn't have the same grief as someone who lost an older child. None of this is true. However you are feeling is exactly how you are supposed to feel, and there is no right or wrong way to handle the death of a child. Postpartum grief is painful, and you can need grief support to help you get through this difficult time.
