Transcription: 
According to Elizabeth Cooper Ross, the pioneer of grief and loss, there are five stages of grief that everybody goes through. In a miscarriage, in your ebb and flow, some of these stages may or may not apply. The first one is denial. Then comes anger. Then comes bargaining. Then comes depression and acceptance. What may or may not resonate is the bargaining one and you may find yourself, instead of bargaining -- having gone through a miscarriage -- is sometimes a feeling of guilt and sometimes a feeling of over-responsibility. It is really important at any of these stages of grief and loss, to really allow any of the emotions to come up and to recognize that you are not at fault and you are not to blame.
