TTC after infant loss

(go back to Long Term Healing/Perspectives)

Reasons why it may be challenging:

  • You may revisit some grief while trying to conceive.  “I’ll love this one better” (bargaining), intense fear of the pregnancy until reaching certain milestones like hearing the heartbeat or feeling the baby kicking (could be an aspect of denial).

Reasons why it may be beneficial:

  • Your next baby, as an adult, might learn from you that you had once lost a baby, their older sibling, and know  that you may have considered not trying again, and the decision to try, and to conceive that child, may be significant to him or her.
