Moving Through Grief

There’s no one way—or right way—to grieve your pregnancy loss. But if you’d like to try it, mindfulness may be an important tool for your journey. One small study found that mindfulness-based intervention was effective in reducing perinatal grief after stillbirth. Another indicates that mindfulness-based therapies can assist in emotional regulation for bereaved people.

Process Your Emotions

The emotional benefits of meditation are many. Not only does research point to increased compassion and empathy when people meditate, one 2021 study found a reduction in perceived stress when women who have had multiple miscarriages participated in a mindfulness and meditation program.

Reduce Stress

You may already know how beneficial meditation is for reducing overall stress, but some research finds it’s particularly effective in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (which can arise from experiencing a traumatic event like miscarriage or stillbirth).

Strengthen Your Resilience

You’ve been through a lot, we know. But you will move through this experience—and meditation can help you recover from stressful or traumatic life events. Research shows that resilience (someone’s capacity to recover after adversity) can be improved through meditation.
