A miscarriage is one of the most painful experiences a woman can go through. Miscarriage is the loss of a little one at his or her youngest stage. Miscarriages are never to be minimized and if a mother has been made to feel that way, that is wrong. As you have lost your child and are planning the delivery, if your physician has told you to do a D&C, may I encourage you to make sure the doctor has you deliver child naturally or c-section. This procedure is truly an undignified way for your passing child to be born. I want to make sure that your child along with you get love and care through dignity and compassion. You can hold and hug and kiss your little one. A D&C cannot give you the opportunity to say goodbye outside of the womb.
