Prospective fathers are affected by miscarriages, but there is a lack of support for them.
Too often miscarriages are seen as only affecting the mother……with a minimum of empathy for the prospective dad. Did it 4 times between #1 and #2 plus fibroid surgery and basic fertility treatments (Gonal-F) Wife was a mess and I had to be the strong one…….lack of support from my wife and others damaged me, being set aside as a unimportant second class person,expected to supply empathy in quantity while receiving almost none. A very hard lonely road to travel.
