Dealing With Miscarriage

Dealing with Miscarriage by Ruth Schwenk

“I am so sorry.”

Once again I lay on the ultrasound table staring through tear-filled eyes at the doctor. She had no explanation, but to tell me that my child’s heart had suddenly stopped at twenty weeks.

“I just don’t understand why,” she said. “I am so sorry.” Just like that, I was thrown back into familiar territory – for the fifth time.

I had become terrified to hear the words, “I am so sorry.” And rightfully so.

Every woman who has had a miscarriage knows there is a groaning and an aching that comes not from labor pains, but from losing a child.

So what do we do when there are no answers and in our grief we cry out to God….Why God?? Join me to read more of Dealing With Miscarriage at The Better Mom.
