A key step to healing after a miscarriage is taking steps to remember the child that was lost. Although this may sound unusual, many men and women who have gone through this experience find that enshrining the memory of their child in some manner helps them to grieve and begin healing. There are many ways this can be done. Naming the child is very common. Some put together a scrapbook, photo album, or memories box. Others hold ceremonies or buy jewelry. The important thing is to proceed how you think is best and feels most natural.
