Women, at times, are unable to lose weight even after exercising. This happens due to the heavy hormonal change they go through after their miscarriage. Miscarriage is a very difficult experience and it leads to major depression. Women might associate this loss with a feeling of incapability to look after their own baby. They might even feel unworthy and lose confidence in themselves.
The best way to deal with this situation is to be supportive and encouraging towards them and help them set weight loss goals while also being supportive and understanding as well as helpful in achieving them.
