I experienced my second miscarriage in September. Like others who have stuffed a loss during the covid pandemic the restrictions in place meant I had to attend all scans and appointments without the support of my husband. Having to find out such devastating news on my own made an already traumatic events significantly worse. If the correct safety procedures could be put in place no one would be left to suffer such devastating news alone!
I had a miscarriage during COVID. I had to go through my ultrasound alone, being told I miscarried, then wait for my d&c alone. I couldn’t see my husband until recovery. Please don’t make anyone else go through this heartwrenching ordeal alone.
I had multiple miscarriages in between my two children. I had one scan on my own when I found out my pregnancy wasn’t viable and that feeling of terror lasted throughout all the other pregnancies. I’ve also just through circumstances beyond our control had to miscarry on my own. No woman should be intentionally denied the support of her partner at this time. There’s little enough support as it is for women going through baby loss.
