Last updated Jul 10, 2023 | 0 comments

Miscarriage Hope Desk founder Allison Schaaf shares 7 tips on how to enjoy pregnancy and not worry so much, even after loss.

In episode 147, Miscarriage Hope Desk founder Allison Schaaf shares tips on how to find real joy in the first trimester after miscarriage.

Allison’s 7 Tips for Finding Joy in the 1st Trimester After Loss:

1. Mantras

“Today I am pregnant” is a mantra that works well for me.

2. Journaling

I will sometimes write out my negative thoughts and then burn the paper. I also love journaling my mantras and affirmations, as well as gratitude journaling. The Pregnancy After Loss program includes journal prompts for the week.

3. Find Specific Ways to Add Joy

What would have filled you with joy if you hadn’t had a loss? Make a list and see if you can allow those joyful moments, whether it’s buying a new maternity dress or calling your sister to tell her you’re pregnant. Find ways to celebrate.

4. Find a Pregnancy Book that Speaks to You

There are so many out there, look for one that will inspire joy in you.

5. Work with a Therapist

I’ve worked with therapists during my first trimesters and they’ve given me so many tools that have helped me through the difficult moments of my fertility journey.

6. Meditation and Breathing Exercises

Specifically, Holosync meditations have been really relaxing and helpful.

7. Find a mentor

Having someone who has been through loss before who you can reach out to can make a huge difference.
