The article, ’I Was Somebody’s Mother’: Reflections On The Guilt And Grief Of Miscarriage, by Terry Gross states

“New Yorker staff writer Ariel Levy was five months pregnant when she went to Mongolia on assignment. Her doctor had cleared her for travel, and she was excited to pursue one last adventurous story before settling down with an infant.

But things didn’t go as planned: Alone in her hotel room, Levy suffered a placental abruption; her baby boy lived for only 10 minutes. Afterward, Levy was haunted by the notion that she had caused her child’s death:

“It’s a terrible feeling … that you made this life and failed to bring it through,” she says.

Levy experienced more loss upon her return to the United States. Just weeks after her son’s death, her spouse checked into rehab and their marriage dissolved. Suddenly, the life Levy had and the future she’d planned no longer existed.

“That winter — that November when I got back, right after Thanksgiving, from Mongolia — it just felt like a tidal pull was sort of sucking all the most important pieces of my life out to sea,” Levy says. “It just kept feeling like, What next? What am I going to lose next? What’s left to lose?”

The one aspect of Levy’s life that remained unchanged was her identity as a writer — and clinging to that identity is what got her through. Her new memoir, The Rules Do Not Apply, describes her experiences with guilt, grief and with moving on.”
