Trigger Warning: This podcast episode describes the process of pregnancy loss, both physiological and emotional in great detail and may not be appropriate for younger audiences and those who might find the subject matter triggering.
Ten to fifteen of every 100 pregnancies results in loss, according to March of Dimes. Other statistics show it's closer to 1 and 4. In the circles I am in- it's closer to 1 in 2. Pregnancy loss is so common, and so incredibly devastating, and yet not talked about nearly enough.
I knew, in doing a series on Women's Health, I didn't want to shy away from the hard truths- that sometimes, pregnancy doesn't go as planned. I want to honor every woman, every baby, even the ones we don't carry in our arms, which is why I'm so honored my friend Alyssa Knapp offered to come on and share her real and raw experience with pregnancy loss, this past spring. Alyssa shares her experience and her truth so honestly, and with such vulnerability- sharing an experience so many women endure, and so little is truly shared about or supported. I hope through this episode you will feel supported in your own experience, or will feel encouraged to support other women in your life.
