People grieve in so many different ways. I have found that just having a memorial item in or around my house has been helpful to me. In spite of the heartache, when I look at some of my memorial items, I am reminded of the love that is still around me. I was gifted several items in the midst of the loss of Mackenzie and my other miscarriages. The people that provided me with these keepsakes are still very near and dear to my heart today.
A mother, who has dealt with a miscarriage or infant loss, can end up having a lot of anxiety, once they conceive again. And, that was definitely the case for me after I became pregnant after a loss. I also wasn’t ready for the challenge that comes with parenting after a loss.
