Healing After a Miscarriage: A Holistic Approach to Womb Wellness

12 Jun, 2024

Experiencing a miscarriage can be one of the hardest times in a woman’s reproductive journey. When you have been yearning for a child, it’s heartbreaking to come so close, only to find it wasn’t the right time.

As someone who has experienced a miscarriage, I understand the pain and grief. However, I also found hope, knowing that my body was capable of pregnancy, even if it wasn’t the outcome I expected. This realisation motivated me to prepare myself better for the future

Understanding Miscarriage

Miscarriage can happen for various reasons, and often, the exact cause is unknown. However, preparing for pregnancy and caring for your womb can help improve your chances of a healthy pregnancy in the future.

Statistics show that 1 in 8 pregnancies will result in miscarriage. Often, the causes are unknown and usually not due to anything you have done. Sometimes, it’s the genetic makeup which results in an inability to develop properly, and this can occur from both the male and female side. Many women will go on to have successful pregnancies later on.

Emotional Healing After Miscarriage

Processing the loss and allowing yourself time to grieve is crucial. As a Muslimah, I find comfort in accepting that what Allaah has planned for us will come to pass. Embracing the Qadr (destiny) of Allaah is a pillar of our faith, and having hope in future blessings can provide solace.

It’s good to talk about your feelings. Make your heartfelt dua, share how you are feeling with friends or family, or seek professional counselling. You may find this book helpful: When a Child Dies: Reminders and Consolation from an Islamic Perspective by Tara Hashim.

Talking about miscarriage may not be common in some communities, but you might find support if you reach out to others who have been in a similar situation. Remember, you are not alone.

Womb Wellness After Miscarriage

Healing from miscarriage involves supporting your womb’s natural cleansing process. Here are some traditional practices and natural remedies to consider:

Womb Health 101

Each month, your womb builds up a lining in anticipation of a fertilized egg. If pregnancy doesn’t occur, your body naturally cleanses the womb. After a miscarriage, this process is similar.

Practical Tips for Post-Miscarriage Recovery

  • Rest: During active bleeding, rest is crucial to give your womb the energy to cleanse effectively.
  • Teas: Womb tonics like nettle and raspberry leaf offer nourishment and aid recovery.
  • Yoni Steaming: After the bleeding stops, yoni steaming can support womb health. Learn more in our post about vaginal steaming or book a personalised session.
  • Castor Oil Packs: Use these after the bleeding stops to avoid increasing blood flow and risking haemorrhage.
  • Gentle Womb Massage: Helps release pregnancy fluids and alleviate discomfort. Use our womblove oil or lavender or clary sage oils for added benefits.

Sprinkle of Hope: Blessed outcomes after Miscarriage

When you’ve been trying to have a baby for a while and feel held back by miscarriages, let me share with you some success stories of clients who overcame similar challenges.

Khadijah*

Khadijah had previously experienced two miscarriages and one medical termination due to a rare condition in the fetus. She deeply desired a child and reached out to me for support. Together, we focused on understanding what her body needed to prepare healthy eggs and how to increase the viability of her womb. Khadijah’s husband also made some lifestyle changes, which helped strengthen the foundation for healthy sperm and egg development.

Before our sessions, Khadijah had clotty and dark-blooded periods, often accompanied by severe cramps. We worked on improving her womb health, and after four cycles of painless, regular periods with bright red blood and no clots, Khadijah became pregnant. She went on to have a full-term, healthy baby girl, Allaahumma barik.

Mina*

Mina came to me after experiencing three late losses around 20 weeks. This was one of my first times working with someone who had experienced such advanced losses. Mina’s periods were irregular, heavy, and characterized by thick black blood. She needed to give her womb some extra special attention, and we worked towards getting her a healthy cycle that would support a healthier pregnancy.

Through womb healing, self-care practices, lifestyle changes, and continuous support, Mina went on to have two full-term pregnancies. After each pregnancy, Mina knew how to support her womb to cleanse, replenish, and recuperate, putting her at an advantage for future pregnancies and long-term womb wellness.

These are just a couple of the many success stories of sisters who have overcome miscarriages and gone on to have healthy pregnancies by adopting womb wellness healing practices.

My Journey After Miscarriage

After experiencing a miscarriage myself, Alhamdulilaah I went on to have three more full-term births maa shaa Allaah. Knowing how to care for our wombs is a vital skill that we can rely on throughout our menstruating years and beyond.

I hope this gives you some inspiration to keep going and provides comfort in knowing that others have had positive outcomes after miscarriage.
