You may experience unwelcome and hurtful comments from those around you. It can be difficult to make sense of such remarks, which are usually well intended. Here are some specific examples to be aware of:
Be prepared for the “at least” comments which, by nature, tend to minimize the experience of loss.
-At least you were only __ weeks along.
-At lease you know you can get pregnant.
-At least you didn’t have to give birth.
-At lease the pregnancy wasn’t planned.
You will most likely hear comments such as:
You can always try again.
This is just “nature’s way.” Something must have been wrong with the baby.
It was probably for the better.
