Meghan went on to write that losing a child "means enduring almost unbearable grief which many experience but which few have spoken of".
"In the pain of our loss, my husband and I found that in a room with 100 women, 10 to 20 of them miscarried," she said. "Despite the amazing commonality of this pain, the conversation remains taboo, full of (unjustified) shame and continues a cycle of lonely grief."
As we approach Christmas time, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and social injustice, Meghan is hoping we can all still check in to each other and asks, "Are you okay?"
"We are adjusting to a new normal in which faces are covered by masks, but it forces us to look each other in the eye – sometimes full of warmth, sometimes full of tears. For the first time in a long time as humans, we really see each other "she concluded her piece. "Are we all right? We will be."
