I never received counseling or help of any kind when I endured a miscarriage between the birth of my son and daughter. One person had the audacity to make a ridiculous comment stating, "You should have waited and spaced them out more" as if this incident was self-inflicted. I know that many women experience miscarriage, post-partum depression, and infant death without the support of a social worker and or therapist. I didn't even have family support. I think society takes the process of birth for granted. Regardless of the circumstances, we all came through childbirth-otherwise we would not be here. Women deserve respect and need support at such a vulnerable time in their lives. Thank you for your article.
