For every three babies that are born, there is one that doesn’t make it. Although it’s a common experience, a miscarriage can be a lonely and isolating time for a woman. It’s also different for every woman.

Here Tracey shares her experiences as one of the contributors to The Sound of Silence – Journeys Through Miscarriage.
