"The Japanese Art of Grieving a Miscarriage"

An warming NY Times Article on creating a ritual of healing following a couples' miscarriage.

"My husband and I were young enough then to assume that tragedies happened to other people and not to us. This was a belief we carried for years until the day we held hands on an ultrasound table watching the technician turn off the monitor and tiptoe out of the room. A miscarriage at 10 weeks produces no body, so there would be no funeral. “What do we even do?” I asked the doctor."
