The doctors used words like 'products of conception' and 'missed abortion' which stung and pulled at my heart. She will always be a baby to me.

After the miscarriage I sank into a deep depression. I kept everything inside and tried to act normally. But suddenly it seemed that every second woman on the street was pregnant, or had a baby. Each of them was an individual punch in the guts, a reminder of what I hadn't been able to do.

I found myself in a foreign state - this place called Loss. Even though I knew there were countless other people who had been there, I felt isolated.

Miscarriage is so common and yet within our culture it is an unspeakable subject. Women often grieve alone, mourning a child they have never met but whose future they have already imagined. It is a private, hidden kind of grief. A grief that gets gagged, buried, overlooked, dismissed, and stuffed into small corners - only to bubble up at unexpected moments.

In The Sound of Silence twenty-two women speak out about their experiences of miscarriage. These are stories of loss and loneliness, hope and joy, strength and courage, and, most of all, overwhelming love. They are a reminder to all women who have experienced a miscarriage that they are not alone.


Must read for anyone who has been through early miscarriage


Fabulous read after going through an early miscarriage. It helps you feel like you are not alone in this experience. Some of the stories are quite sad & others are inspiring. It feels like a support group when going through the tough time of miscarriage
