Oct 9, 2018

 

*Trigger warning* On today’s episode the squad will be discussing perinatal loss which we know is a sensitive and difficult subject. Please take the space you need and step away from the episode if needed

We know 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss, and like many of the topics we tackle, our hope is that by talking more openly about the experience, we can feel less alone on the journey. We would also like to recognize that October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. The loss of a child stays with a parent forever, but it can be challenging for others to truly understand the emotional and physical impact. Events across the country take place each October in order to educate and help people better empathize and support parents through their grief journey.
