One last instagram on this topic. It feels good to know that I was able to share my story and that I am not making a secret out of it. When we first got to know the news, we thought "we are not going to tell anyone" as if a #miscarriage is something we have to feel ashamed about. It's not! It's actually pretty normal. Very sad for sure. But yet, it happens to so many women. So we decided to treat the topic as something normal. And even more; I want to talk with many women about it because I realised that many women feel totally left alone and insecure when getting to know that their baby is dead. Everyone I talked to went to hospital when they got the sad news and everyone experienced that they were treated like objects, with no compassion. I think that is SO sad. This is why I want to encourage women to read my story about how I "gave birth" to my dead baby at home where I felt safe. Only my midwife checked on me later on, no hospital, no doctor. And I think this is partly why I feel so calm and even grateful for my #missedabortion experience.
