Our expert says:
So sorry to hear about this, KAT. You feel how you feel - there's no popint in making yourself feel worse by blaming yourself for feeling the way you naturally are reacting.
As for the child, there's really no alternative to calmly and gently telling her what did happen, and that such things sadly do happen at times and its nobody's fault. You can't tell her nothing - her imagination would fill in the blanks with something worse than the truth.
Your feelings are normal and understandable, and may change in various ways, all normal.
Don't decide right away about whether or no to eventually try for another pregnancy - let yourself recover emotionally from this one before considering such options or rejecting them
