Cruse Bereavement Care

A Very Un-British Miscarriage

A blog written by two lovely young people who are on their  journey to parenthood. They have first hand experience of bereavement and have developed this blog to help others in similar circumstances.

This is an invaluable insight into the journeys of those of us who are the 1 in 4. It provides a little talked about perspective from the father’s side of things, a side which isn’t often seen or talked about as the focus is usually on the mother. Sit back with a brew and have a read, we’re sure this will help you realise you’re not alone!
