The Nightmare of Pregnancy Loss and the Hope to Heal (by Zahra Haji / Yoga Goddess)
In my work with women struggling to conceive, I’ve recently seen 3 different clients who have each suffered 5 or more miscarriages.
It breaks my heart every time to hear about a woman losing her child, no matter how early on. It’s not only the loss of a baby but the dream of becoming a mother, of caring for and nurturing that child, that doctors and even loved ones don’t always understand.
There’s this idea in the fertility world that we need to keep pushing through like female warriors on the quest of making a baby.
And that’s a problem.
Because the heart and the womb don’t work that way. They can’t be pushed into doing what we want. You can’t make your heart love any more than you can make your womb reproduce.
But you CAN nurture them.
That’s the message I shared with my client Shelena, who has lost 5 pregnancies all before 6 weeks. Making her heartbreak even worse, her doctor doesn’t consider them “real miscarriages” because a heartbeat was never detected.
So after her most recent loss, she came to me for a Womb Blessing.
A Womb Blessing is a hands-on energy healing similar to reiki, but focused on the womb and 5 key points related to fertility.
I was amazed at how Shelena’s body responded. I have never felt such a physical thirst from a woman’s body. It’s as though her womb was drinking in the energy, starved for the Divine Feminine reconnection.
On some level, we all are. We’re starving to reconnect with our feminine nature because in our daily lives we’re told to just “pick yourself up and keep going.”
Like Anya, who also lost 5 pregnancies. When she came for a Womb Blessing I suggested we light 5 candles to represent her miscarriages.
Afterward she said:
I resisted doing anything to commemorate them myself because I was afraid to revisit the experiences, but I found that small, ceremonial gesture so moving and very effective. It was the first time that I truly acknowledged these souls and said goodbye.
That night she felt relaxed and at ease. She told me,
Now I feel lighter about my efforts to become pregnant and more at peace with my past experiences.
In our own way, I think we all are longing for acknowledgment and healing. Because if we just keep pressing forward and never stop to acknowledge our pain, healing can’t happen.
And you can “push through it” up to a point. But at some point you need help.
Help that isn’t medical. Help that isn’t trying to “fix you.” Help that’s healing for you.
If you are struggling to conceive and carry a pregnancy, I want to extend that help to you with a Womb Blessing Ceremony.
Because a Womb Blessing is a direct reconnection between the earth, your heart and your womb.
And to help you begin that reconnection immediately, I want you to have a special meditation called the Womb Tree meditation.
Just click HERE and you’ll be taken to the
Womb Blessing page where you can download the meditation
–AND if it feels right you can book a Womb Blessing with me too.
Connection with the Divine Feminine is your birthright as a woman. I want to make it as easy as possible for you to claim that birthright and begin healing your heart-womb connection.

It is devastating for a woman who carried a baby in her womb then eventually lost the baby. That could be one of the most unfortunate incident that could happen to all pregnant women. I guess, there is no way we can hide or neglect the pain. At some point, I believe that we need to acknowledge the pain of pregnancy lost and think about it. Give yourself time. Then, once you are ready to move forward, that is the only time you move.
