Your grief over the loss of a child you never had is valid, remember that. 

Trigger Warning: This story discusses miscarriage that may be disturbing to readers. 

As common as miscarriages are, it's a devastating experience and takes a toll on the person who's lost their child. Often, miscarriages occur even before a woman knows she's pregnant, but according to Mayo Clinic, approximately 10 to 20% of known pregnancies end in a miscarriage.

Despite being common, it is considered somewhat of a taboo in different parts of the world, often forcing a woman to grieve her loss in silence, which can actually affect them a lot more. But, one brave woman named Kristen R. More, not only spoke about her miscarriage, but she also shared 14 things that no one really tells anyone about the situation. 

"Today, I paid over $1000 out of pocket for my miscarriage,” she wrote on Twitter, adding, “They didn’t tell me it would cost so much to lose a baby.” Here's what More had to say about what she learned from her miscarriage:

1. It's not easy to get over



 

 

2. Not everyone is empathetic



 

 

3. You aren't always informed of the procedure



 

 

4. You are sometimes denied information



 

 

5. Sometimes, decent pharmacists will help you



 

 

6. You tend to keep expecting bad news



 

 

7. It's going to be a hard and lonely journey



 

 

8. Your emotions are going to be all over the place



 

 

9. Your partner experiences grief, too



 

 

10. Your body keeps reminding you of the loss



 

 

11. People often end up saying the wrong things to you



 

 

12. The worst is when they try to justify the loss 



 

 

13. But, there will always be someone to help you, just at the right time



 

 

14. You experience loss while being slapped with a hefty bill



 

 

Losing a loved one is never easy, even though you may not have seen them at all. Grief is grief, and it comes in all shapes and sizes, and you grieving over the loss of a child you never had is valid, remember that.
