Grief for stillbirths and abortions

Katarina, a psychologist from Sydney, Australia,

“My sister has since had two stillbirths – as a family we have grieved and emphasized with her and her husband’s dreadful pain. Inside of me I felt cheated as no one had grieved with me for my two lost children – not even me. My sister’s children died at the same time as both my losses – I felt responsible, guilty, and so alone. When my mom says the no one in the family has experienced pain like my sister my heart cries out silently – but I have.”
