It’s happening to him too

It is easy to focus on the woman when she miscarries and unintentionally forget about the father. Although the woman is going through it physically, both the mother and father are hurting just as much emotionally. From the minute you find out you’re pregnant you both start to plan and dream for the future with your child. Those dreams and hopes are crushed for both of you, but so often the man feels like he has to be strong for his partner and doesn’t give himself the time and space to heal himself. My husband has been wonderful over the last year, supporting me, keeping me positive and being there through all the fear and frustration. Every day I am thankful for that. But he has lost 3 babies this year tooand I wanted to acknowledge that.
