Parents of lost babies and potential of all kinds: come here to share the technicolour, the vividness, the despair, the heart-broken-open, the compassion we learn for others, having been through this mess — and see it reflected back at you, acknowledged and understood.

Hi, I work in an OBGYN department. We deal daily with early pregnancy loss. I am in constant lookout for new groups and ways for patients to heal. Wondering if this would be a good start for them?

Hi Terri,

I think it might not be the perfect fit - there are some who come to talk about experiences of early miscarriage (and they are welcome here), but they rarely stick around. Most who stay on the site have a history of late miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal/baby/toddler death. I can imagine that we might be quite overwhelming to most!

Ana, you put it more gently and lovingly than I ever could. I second your view.

Agree with these sentiments.
