PLEASE TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT INSPIRED THIS WORK: I handle a lot of mouse breeding at work, and that's where I realized what miscarriage could be like for mothers. One day a mouse was having dystocia and a pup was halfway out and losing circulation so I massaged her belly to help slowly push it out. But the baby was pale and close to being dead but since this was the first time I came across this I cleaned and warmed it till it started breathing. I put it back in the cage and it lived to adulthood. Even though I wasn't the mother I was desperate to save that pup, so I can only imagine nurturing a child inside you only to lose it by miscarriage. Mis- is for missing the unborn child and Mis from miscarriage.
