SELF – Singer Hillary Scott Shows There’s No ‘Right’ Way To Deal With A Miscarriage

Very pleased to help out with this great piece for SELF about the grieving process after miscarriage.

Those feelings of grief are also exacerbated by hormonal and physical changes that come with suffering a miscarriage, licensed clinical psychologist Alicia H. Clark, Psy.D., tells SELF. “A miscarriage is a whole-body experience where, in a moment, everything changes,” she says. “This isn’t easy, and takes time to recover from.”

If talking about it is the best way for you to move forward, Clark says it’s important to do so in a way that’s constructive. “Research shows that when talking about a loss, constructing a narrative of healing is helpful,” she says. “Talk about your feelings, talk about your sadness, and also talk about how you are surviving the pain.”
