This article is about how to recover after a miscarriage or stillbirth.

What To Expect When Baby Never Comes Home

After my third miscarriage I was Inconsolable. I can remember my mother telling me that every thing was going to be alright, but her attempt to ease my pain fell on deaf ears.

In the meantime, my sister has given birth effortlessly and is now the mother of three children, with her fourth child on the way.

I enjoy being an Aunt, but I desperately want a child of my own . At times I feel as if I'm being punished by God. My pregnancies are nothing but disappearing acts, Will this pain ever end? Joanne.

I carried Piper in my womb for 32 weeks. I can remember going into labor on a cold rainy day. The pain penetrated through my entire body like lightning. My husband took me to the hospital. When I arrived, my doctor examined me and shortly after I was wheeled into the delivery room. My daughter who we decided to name Piper, was stillborn.

After the loss of my child, nothing seemed real. . I keep asking why? Yet this question continues to go unanswered.

Everyone tells what to expect when your expecting, but no one tells you what to expect when your baby never comes home.

Love joy.

The Facts

My heart goes out to all women who struggle with this tragic misfortune of sudden emptiness. The Facts given by most doctors indicate, that three-quarters of all miscarriages if not more occur in the first 12 weeks. According to research 60 percent are due to some abnormality of the embryo not destined to root properly.

Further research indicates that miscarriages are more common in women who have had several miscarriages, in young women (under the age of 21) and older women and in those with endometriosis .

Doctors report that If a cervix is abnormally weak, as it may be in women whose mothers may have taken the synthetic hormone diethylstilbestrol (DES) during there pregnancy, it may dilate prematurely and the baby can be lost.

Warning Signs To Look Out For During your pregnancy:

  • Cramping
  • Spotting
  • Passing Blood Clots or tissue
  • High temperature
  • Leakage of fluid from the vagina which may mean your membranes have ruptured.
  • An absence of fetal movement for 8 to 10 hours, especially if the fetus is normally active.

In such cases listed above contact your doctor immediately.

      Dear SWilliams,

      I am sorry to hear about your repeated miscarriages.

      My daughter also had a miscarriage in the 2nd month. She was healthy & yet it happened. I remember how upset she was.

      Finally, we sat down to think of what precautions could be taken.

      1. No travelling by train or flight in the first 3 months.

      2. Not to be hungry for long. Don't even wait for others to join you at the dining table. Just put something in the mouth when you are hungry. A biscuit will also do.

      3. I have read food rich in B Complex, etc. helps.

      4. There is a cure for this in Homeopathy.

      5. No papaya please.

      6. Be positive.
