Because miscarriage is generally not recognized as a loss, many women lack the
necessary support to deal effectively with their grief.
Many women feel unprepared to deal with the ramifications of their lost pregnancies alone.
The loss of a pregnancy can be misunderstood by friends and family leaving women and their
partners to feel unsupported and isolated.
