At some stage in our lives we experience grief. When there was a person to grieve it is more understandable. When it is a result of a miscarriage, there is almost a stigma about it. “Shake yourself off and move on,” for many of us it is not quite as simple as that. For those who experience recurrent miscarriages, every subsequent loss can get harder. This is one of my poems about miscarriage and the guilt I felt at the time.
