2. Seek help and talk about your feelings with your partner, supportive family members, friends, a counselor or spiritual advisor. Don't isolate yourself — join a support group in your community or online so you can connect with other women who have had similar experiences. If you or someone near to you believes your grief is causing you to become depressed, seek professional help immediately from a qualified mental health care provider.
3. Consider creating a personal shrine or conducting a meaningful ritual with your partner or a supportive friend to commemorate your loss as part of your mourning process. This could involve writing a letter to your unborn child, creating art, or making a shrine in your home honoring your loss. Do whatever you feel will be comforting and empowering for you so you can eventually open up to the future with as much ease as possible.
