I'm struggling to come to terms with my miscarriage

DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE I had a miscarriage I can’t bear to see pregnant women or babies in pushchairs.

My miscarriage happened five months ago, but I am struggling to come to terms with it.

I am 28 and my husband is 30.

We have been married for three years and plan to have a big family. We tried for a few months to get pregnant, and were overjoyed when I conceived.

It was devastating when I miscarried at three months.

My husband seems to be coping much better than me and is optimistic I will conceive again soon but the thought of losing another baby is putting me off.

I know I will be a bag of nerves.

DEIDRE SAYS: It is terrible to lose a much-wanted baby and only natural that you are anxious it may happen again.

It may take time before you are ready to decide when or whether to try again.

You can find help at the Miscarriage Association, who will understand your very real fears (miscarriageassociation.org.uk, 01924 200 799).
