Miscarriage

April 29, 2015 | By

I wrote the poem, ‘miscarriage’, some twenty years after the loss of two babies in early pregnancy. The writing helped me understand why I felt under-supported on each occasion, and why my grief remained acute despite the time that had elapsed.
This poem is an attempt to reveal this shadow in my life. My hope is that it will resonate with other women who have experienced the silencing that too often accompanies the loss of a baby to miscarriage
