iVillage Women to Michelle Duggar: "A Loss Is a Loss"

Our hearts go out to the Duggar family after her miscarriage

Put aside the Duggars you know from reality television and magazine covers, and we're left with a grieving family. Most women in our community -- some of them who have suffered their own losses -- have left comments of support for the Duggar family:

"Maybe it's because it's so close to our loss...but I'm having a really hard time with this. Poor Duggars. I think they're going to get slammed by some people in the media. And no one deserves that after a miscarriage." -- tiredoflurking

"I know I have scoffed at them in jealousy of their robust fertility. And I don't agree with having that many children because it turns the older children into caretakers of the younger ones. But for her to lose a 2nd-trimester baby after so many successes...so sad." -- chouli77

"It doesn't matter how many kids you have, a loss is a loss. And I agree: she's going to get slammed in the media which will make it that much harder for them. I think it's terrible." -- brew0707

"I never even go to the Dr. without fearing we won't find the heartbeat, it's just tragic it happens to anyone. I'm sure it would be hard to have to tell all their kids too." -- cutewife2001

"As much as I don't agree with having that many kids, it breaks my heart because it’s the exact same way we lost ours...while at the ultrasound to find out the sex." -- cjappert

"There are many women out there that would love to have one child, and watching them have child after child really makes it hard on others. With that said, I would never wish a miscarriage on anyone. It is heartbreaking and I do feel for the family. I just wish it wasn't news." -- fp-alysse

"So very sad, and to have to live it in the public eye like this with everyone thinking they get an opinion on whether it was 'deserved' or not must be brutal." - calebsmoma2000

The family named their baby Jubilee Shalom Duggar, and has set a date for her memorial service.
