How do you deal with a miscarriage? Having not experienced one, my only experience is from numerous friends who have had to and I know how it has long term effects. Sadly, it is yet another ‘issue’ that as a society we don’t talk about openly yet 1 in 4 babies just don’t make it. Here on the Fertility Podcast I am in a privileged position to be able to talk to people who are willing to share their own struggles in an attempt to help you.
In June 2016, as you’ll know if you’ve been following this podcast I was involved in Fertility Fest and since then have been reaching out to people who have contacted me from the event. In this episode you will hear from Julia Bueno a psychotherapist in London and Lizzie Lowrie who writes a blog called Saltwater and Honey
Both women have had to deal with recurrent miscarriage and share their stories and their wisdom on how to manage your grief. I hope that listening to how they have moved on, marked their grief and continue to talk about miscarriage helps you.
