      Letting Go of Guilt: Clara Hinton addresses one of the more difficult aspects of the grief process in this enlightening article. "What if’s" and "If only I had… ", the "could have", "should have’s"… all crowd in for attention. Read more to learn how to recognize and deal with these feelings of guilt.

      Permission To Grieve: Often, when a loss is experienced, it is difficult to feel it is ok to grieve… or even to think about healing. Journaling your thoughts however can prove to be therapeutic. Read this parent’s loving letter to her angel.

      Where Does A Father Find Support?: There is a misconception that men don’t grieve a pregnancy or infant loss – Perhaps they may not shed tears as easily, if at all.. or ever want to talk about it… while women long to share their feelings more openly. The fact is that men do grieve – just differently. Learn more.

      Finding the Courage to Try Again: It takes courage to try again when your previous pregnancy ended in miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss. As you know only too well from past experience, there is no guarantee that you’ll end up with a storybook happy ending nine months down the road. Reknowned author, Ann Douglas offers a peek into the future and hope.

      Boards:
      Miscarriage and Stillbirth Support Group: Sometimes a pregnancy just doesn't work out. If you've experienced either a miscarriage,stillbirth, or other pregnancy/infant loss, the long-term affects can be far-reaching. Meet others who have been through this, talk, share, and heal together.

      Single Twin or Multiple Loss: Have you lost one of your twins or both of your multiples? Meet with other moms who have been through this loss and talk about how you're coping.

      Tools and Resources:

      Pregnancy.org Memorial Wall: At Pregnancy.org, we recognize the many emotions that one goes through when experiencing a loss. There are those of anger, bewilderment, and tremendous sorrow. There are those of pain -- that deep in the pit of your stomach kind; those that leave you longing to be numb.

      Everyone copes differently after experiencing a loss. Some wish to talk and share with anyone that will listen while others clam up tight. Neither way is necessarily *wrong*. Whatever you are comfortable with is fine.

      A source of healing for many however is to find a way to pay tribute to the one they love. (Note that I did say and mean the present tense. Love never dies.) Pregnancy.org is pleased to now offer you a way to express your remembrance.

      Grief and Loss Area: Here you'll find everything you need to find support, resources or continue on your journey to healing. We've gathered advice, articles, community and much more for our members. You are not alone! As a community it is important to come together for support. We are all there for each other!

      A personal note from MissyJ: For all of those that have experienced a loss of a child or perhaps have been touched in some way through a loved one's pain, please know that you have my thoughts, prayers, and support. Unfortunately this is a process that I have had to deal with myself several times over. Know that I grieve when any of you do and long to help. The greatest source of my personal healing has been through the resources on this site that we have gathered, researched, written, and offered.... especially the "celebration" of this day together. To all of you that have offered me support and love, thank you. For all of you that need it, know that I am here.

      Take care,
      Missy (missyj@pregnancy.org)
