“I was in denial about my second miscarriage for at least a week. We were on a camping holiday over New Year when it started and I guess I chose not to deal with it whilst we were away. Later, I felt guilty that I hadn’t sought medical attention, as perhaps I could have stopped it. Deep down I knew there was nothing I could do. The shock that it was happening to me again was overwhelming but I was fortunate that I had had a successful pregnancy in between. I found that somewhat comforting. The acceptance came sooner, I think, but I experienced deeper anxiety during the following months of getting and then staying pregnant. I don’t know how women who suffer multiple miscarriages cope, as I knew I would struggle greatly to go through another miscarriage. I would not wish it upon my worst enemy.
