Why a Blog About Miscarriage?

Did you know that one out of every three women will experience a miscarriage during her childbearing years?
Think about someone you know who has experienced a miscarriage or stillbirth. Did you know what to say or how to help them?

This is why I created the Coping with Miscarriage blog. When I experienced my first miscarriage, I needed something to read that would comfort me and someone to talk with who really understood what I was going through. I plan to fill this blog with several different topics to help those who mourn and those who comfort.

I also want to put the word out about my upcoming book. The title is Lost Children: Coping with Miscarriage.

I wrote this book because I wanted to discuss the many questions I had about why miscarriage happened, the conflicting emotions I experienced, the devastation I felt when I couldn’t get pregnant after my miscarriage and what happened to the babies I lost. Many women that I talked with had the same questions and concerns.

I hope my book will help someone to travel their road of grief with knowledge that even though the mountain is steep, there is another side. There are people all over the world who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, and infertility. If you would like to share your story here, please contact me at

I will be posting several stories of personal experiences with miscarriage, infertility, and stillbirth because I believe that sharing our experiences helps us realize that we aren’t alone in our grief. It also helps us believe that on the other side of our trials, life has something in store for us—something that might not be a baby—but definitely something that we are supposed to have in this life.


  1. This blog will be such a support to those who've dealt, or are dealing, with a miscarriage. Thank you for posting a blog ... and for writing a book that will bring comfort to many.

  2. Thanks Cindy. I appreciate your support. :)

  3. Rachelle, this blog will be a God send to someone searching for answers. I also am part of this group. I went through 5 years of infertility, then during my first pregnancy my son Matthew, was stillborn at 35 weeks, and then in 2006 I miscarried a baby at 11 weeks. I know about the heartache and the questions a woman has about why this is happening to her. I look forward to reading your book.


Thank you for your support. Your comment will be reviewed before it is published here. My goal with this blog is to help others and I will only publish comments which I deem suitable for this site.
