I had a miscarriage. How do I use Glow again?

This is a great question. The answer is we are trying to figure it out - but we are not there yet.

Miscarriages are devastating. So we want to ease your transition back to Glow and give you the support you need. Some women would like to pretend that it never happened and start again. Other women tend to become much more cautious and want to know what, if anything, they can do to prevent another miscarriage. We want to be able to help both types of women.

We are working on adding functionality into our app that will ask you whether you would like to simply hit the reset button and start again from your next cycle - or if you would like insights and tasks that are more in tune with your miscarriage and hint at gentle ways to minimize your risks. For example by cutting down on caffeine and exercising only in moderation. (But please note: For most miscarriages, absolutely NOTHING could have been done to prevent them.) So, this really is a personal choice.

For now, please send us an email at support@glowing.com and we will work with you on an individual basis.

If you have any ideas or suggestion on how best to handle this sensitive topic - we are very much open to feedback! Thank you!
