men + miscarriage

Miscarriage can not only take a physical and mental toll on the women, but also have a big effect on men too.  Many men have difficulty discussing their emotions surrounding miscarriage and "all too often grapple with the emotional fallout of miscarriage largely on their own."  Men struggling with miscarriage often do not seek help and feel huge amounts of guilt.  “The guilt is very often the result of the fact that he himself is struggling. He’s got a lot of anxiety and depression but doesn’t feel entitled to it — kind of like, `Hey, I’m not the one who lost the baby, so what right do I have to be taking up her emotional bandwidth with my issues?’ That dynamic gets to a much broader social phenomenon in which we train boys, adolescents and men.” huffington post
