12 Women Open Up About The Aftermath Of A Miscarriage

"Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be happy again."

There is no standard or "right" way to respond in the days, weeks and months after having a miscarriage.

Women are proving this with the help of Whisper, an app that allows users to anonymously share their thoughts. A look at their different experiences shows that miscarriage can affect people in many ways. From feelings of sadness to periods of loneliness, this is what the aftermath of a miscarriage is really like.
