Process, feel and integrate your grief after pregnancy loss
Pregnancy loss is a special kind of hell.
I know because I lost my second child in pregnancy due to multiple devastating conditions which ultimately led to a medical termination. It.was.hell.on.earth.
In the months afterward, one of the things that accompanied me in my pain was my writing. Writing about the loss, writing to my baby, writing about the whole experience.
Writing helped me, somehow, to integrate and process the death of my baby.
I created this collection of journaling prompts because so many lists of "journal prompts for grief" I found were for the grief/death of a full-grown person.
...and one of the most heartbreaking things about pregnancy loss is that we barely, if at all, get to know our babies outside the womb.
These prompts reflect that reality, the loss of never knowing. A loss of never growing.
I hope that you too can be soothed and seen, through your words and your writing.
Please use these prompts as a jumping off point.
