WORD OF AD­VICE

Your Pregnancy - - Inbox -

My heart broke when I dis­cov­ered I’d lost my very first baby at just 14 weeks along. My hus­band was by my side through­out the heal­ing process, and I recog­nised that he needed to heal too. So of­ten, women think a mis­car­riage hap­pens to us alone, and we don’t see the suf­fer­ing of our part­ners, be­cause they have to be so strong for us. My ad­vice to women who have lost a preg­nancy is to be open to your part­ner’s emo­tions too, be­cause they’re just as im­por­tant as ours. DENISE
