I like to think that I am helping men in some aspects of their lives but whilst I’m confident that I can help you make up for a missed anniversary, I can’t tell you how to feel.
I can imagine how I would feel if I miscarried, I can imagine how you might feel if your partner miscarried but I can’t be sure so when I saw this article (How a Man handles a Miscarriage) I knew I had to share it and hope that you will too.
To summarise, Marcus Brotherton describes six key learnings from his experiences with miscarriage:
1. You grieve.
2. You’re tempted to apologize.
3. Your job is to love.
4. You commemorate, or not.
5. You don’t replace the child.
6. You keep going.
