I used to think that miscarriages were one of those things that only happened to other people. The truth has changed me forever and taught me to never take anything for granted in life. I think that miscarriages are among the most difficult challenges that a couple can face, but that like everything else in life, adversity makes you stronger. If you have had a recent loss, you are probably overwhelmed right now and you may fear that life will never be good again, but you're stronger than you think you are. You will get through this. It isn't always going to be this hard.
Krissi Danielsson is a former writer for Verywell Family covering miscarriage and pregnancy loss. She is the author of After Miscarriage, published by Harvard Common Press.
Krissi experienced the loss of her first, second, and third pregnancies all within in the first trimester. She was disappointed in the available support resources, particularly for recurrent miscarriages, so she began to research and ultimately built her popular website, the Recurrent Miscarriage Information Center.
Krissi has had two healthy children since her miscarriages, but miscarriage support remains an area of high interest for her.
Krissi has a bachelor of science in psychology from Excelsior College. She attended Lund University Medical School in Sweden and earned a degree in family medicine.
