Pregnancy losses and reproductive losses can have a profound emotional impact - that's usually underestimated by others.
“My twin babies stopped developing around 6 weeks. I am crushed.”
"The pain of this loss is real; the pain of two is unimaginable.”
“Hearing the doctor say: ‘I’m sorry you lost your baby,’ shattered my whole world.”
“My miscarriage happened 50 years ago. I was devastated. I felt like a failure.”
Did you know that one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage? These - and other types of pregnancy and reproductive losses - are often underestimated or ignored. Sadly, this kind of grief can end up marginalized, hidden, and unresolved for years – even decades.
Life Perspectives is changing this. With tools to help process grief after reproductive loss, research to better understand it, and training for Emergency Department staff and other healthcare professionals, we are making a difference in how these losses are understood and how people are provided with compassionate care.
Life Perspectives is helping those impacted by pregnancy and reproductive loss – and you can too! Through your generosity, we offer support to those impacted – the support they so desperately need – and we assure them that their children will not be forgotten.
Your contributions will have a ripple effect that creates a bigger impact than you know – or can even measure! Donate today or contact us for other ways you can help. Thank you!
