Experiencing a miscarriage can be a traumatic and painful experience. It takes time to acknowledge the feelings that come up, and let them go.
Before trying to conceive after a miscarriage, I recommend my JUJU mamas take up to 3 months to properly process the experience.
The strongest fruit has the most powerful roots.
And when you take the time to heal after miscarriage, you and your partner are building a strong foundation for your future family. That’s because miscarriages bring many physical, emotional, and spiritual blocks to the surface. Learning to address each of these will help prepare you for when you’re ready to get pregnant after a miscarriage.
How to physically heal from a miscarriage
If you don’t understand why you’ve experienced a miscarriage, getting to the root cause is an important first step in healing.
According to healthline, repeated miscarriages can be a sign of hormonal imbalances, blood clots, autoimmune issues, high blood sugar, or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
These health issues need to be addressed first before trying to conceive again.
Although you should never blame yourself for experiencing a miscarriage, your body may be trying to tell you that something isn’t right.
I recommend consulting with your medical doctor, as well as implementing natural remedies to support your health after miscarrying.
Here are a few ways to support your physical health after a miscarriage:
Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water
Eat a well balanced diet of organic fruits, veggies, and healthy fats
Practice light exercise for 30 minutes 5x a week
Reduce the use of endocrine disrupting products in your home
Supplement your diet with herbs that support fertility
How to emotionally heal from a miscarriage
Although a physical health issue could be the reason behind your miscarriage, many miscarriages happen spontaneously with no physical reason.
When this happens, feelings of blame, guilt, or confusion often rise to the surface.
Experiencing a miscarriage can be traumatic. It brings up painful emotions such as grief, loss, anger, shame, guilt, anxiety, resentment, and disappointment.
It’s important to take time to work through these emotions and let them go before trying to conceive again.
Understanding the stages of grief after miscarriage is an important first step to processing some of these emotions.
The only way to heal emotionally is to give yourself time. Through time, you can learn to accept your loss, and let it be.
Here are a few ways to support your emotional health after miscarriage:
Talk with your partner openly about your feelings and work through them together
Understand that miscarriages aren’t your fault
Journal about your feelings to help you process the experience
Join a community to get support from other women who’ve been through it
How to spiritually heal from a miscarriage
Taking the time to honor the spirit baby who was lost during your miscarriage is an important step in healing from the experience. A big part of this spiritual healing journey is working through the trauma we experience along the way.
As a divine feminine being, it is within you to create.
But sometimes that connection can become spiritually blocked or severed. Once you’re able to release the spiritual trauma stored in your physical body, you can call forth your spirit baby and let them know it’s safe to come through again.
Rituals open the gates for your lost spirit baby to come through and connect. This connection can offer healing messages, wisdom, and the closure you need to move on and try again.
A Ritual for Healing After Miscarriage
When it comes to practicing rituals after a miscarriage, it’s important for both you and your partner to participate. Even our male counterparts need to release and cleanse from the spirit babies they have created that didn’t make it through the pregnancy. Below is a simple ritual you and your partner can perform to help you heal spiritually after a miscarriage.
1. A Spiritual Cleansing Bath
The first step in this healing ritual is for you and your partner to take a spiritually cleansing bath.
A spiritual bath is not necessarily about getting clean, but rather clearing the negative blocks in your physical, emotional, and spiritual body.
You can do this by:
Soaking in a bathtub
Taking a shower
Washing your hands or feet
Splashing water on your face
The way in which the spiritual bath is taken is not important; what matters is that you and your partner are using this time to set intentions around healing, so you can be prepared for the ritual ahead.
2. The Naming Ceremony
Once both your energies are cleansed, it’s time to begin the ritual with a naming ceremony. The naming ceremony allows you to give your child a name they are able to recognize. This will help you connect to the spirit baby who was lost, so you can help guide them home.
3. The Fire Release Ritual
After you and your partner have decided on a name that feels true, write it down on a piece of paper. Include a message for this child sharing how you feel, and explain your intentions to let them pass back into the spiritual realm.
Once you have crafted your message, light a candle to honor the child. Once you’re ready, set the message on fire so the smoke can be sent to the spirit world. This process releases the babies that are stuck in this realm and allows for forgiveness to take place.
Engaging in some kind of ritual after a miscarriage will help you observe the experience, honor the life that was lost, and acknowledge your feelings so you, your partner, and your spirit baby can continue forward.
