I’m devastated after having a miscarriage but my partner doesn’t want more children – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM devastated after having a miscarriage at the weekend.

The only way I will get over this is if I have hopes of becoming pregnant again – but my partner doesn’t want more children.

It happened the day after I learned I was pregnant.

We weren’t trying for a baby but I was thrilled, thinking this was my last chance of becoming a mum again.

I am 40, with a lovely six-year-old daughter and a son who’s 17 by my ex.

I have always said I’d like another child but I don’t know how to talk to my partner now.

He has been a tower of strength this past week and we are very much in love. Apart from this, we agree on everything.

I don’t want to resent him for denying me another baby.

DEIDRE SAYS: You are in the grip of the physical and emotional effects of your miscarriage.

It is best not to take a major decision – like having another child – for at least six months.

Tell your partner how much you value his support and put this decision to one side for now while you focus on recovering.

You have both lost the baby and my e-leaflet Had A Miscarriage? will help.
