Quotes about grief and pregnancy loss help me express myself. Sometimes, all I need to feel better is a quick word of encouragement to get me through an emotional moment.
If I can’t find the right words to express how I’m feeling, I look for a good quote to explain how I feel. Quotes also help my support circle understand how I’m feeling, especially those who haven’t experienced pregnancy loss themselves.
I also find that scriptures from the Bible can be comforting when I’m looking for ways to share how I’m feeling. Getting back into the Word of God was very helpful in my healing journey.
Quotes about Grief and Pregnancy Loss
I’m a mother who was blessed to carry an angel. God needed my son to grace Heaven with his presence and I’m honored that MY son was chosen. That’s how I find my happiness. Joshua is my angel and my protection, not my forfeiture.
…and to think, the first thing he saw when his little eyes opened was the face of Jesus.
If our love was enough to save you, you would have lived forever.
There is a unique pain that comes for preparing a place in your HEART for a baby that NEVER COMES.
Your heart stopped but my love for you did not.
I don’t think most people truly understand how much is lost when a baby dies. You don’t just lose a baby, you also lose the 1 and 2 and 10 and 16 year old she would have become. You lose Christmas mornings, loose teeth, first days of school… you just lost it all.
–Stephanie Page Cole
Of all the things my hands have held, the best by far was you.
There is no footprint too small to leave an imprint on this world.
A mother holds her child’s hand for a short while, but holds their heart forever.
We do not “get over” a death. We learn to carry the grief and integrate the loss in our lives. In our hearts, we carry those who have died. We grieve and we love. We remember.
Quotes about Strength and Healing
I don’t remember the exact moment when my healing really started. I just know that I started having more good days than bad days, and I no longer felt guilty about that anymore. Reflecting on my journey, I began to hope for more good days, and was actually grateful about feeling good.
Strength grows in moments when you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway.
It has been said that time heals all wounds. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.
–Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy
Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the tiny voice at the end saying of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”
It’s ok if you thought you were over it but it hits you all over again. It’s ok to fall apart even if you thought you had it under control. You’re not weak. Healing is messy. And there is no timeline for healing.
Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom.
