5 Things You Can Do When Your Friend has a Miscarriage by Dr. Lora Shahine

Aug 18, 2016 | Fertility Care
by Dr. Lora Shahine Having a miscarriage can be an isolating and devastating experience for some people. As a recurrent pregnancy loss specialist, I ask my patients about their emotional well-being in addition to their physical well-being. Patients with miscarriages are grieving their losses and describe the strain this can place on relationships with friends and family. People can unintentionally be hurtful when trying to be supportive. Patients can feel isolated from their family and friends. Miscarriage is more common that you may think since approximately 1 out of 3 women will have a miscarriage in their lifetime. If someone you care about has had a miscarriage, here are some ideas for how you can help. Please share. 1. Listen – Avoid clichés like “Everything happens for a reason” or “It just wasn’t meant to be.” Clichés are clichés for a reason. Avoid giving advice unless asked.

The fact is, miscarriages make many providers uncomfortable. Why? Many women will have one miscarriage but recurrent miscarriage is (fortunately) not very common so...
