While miscarriage is unfortunately not that uncommon (10-20% of women who know they are pregnant will lose a baby early in pregnancy), it can feel like such an isolating experience.

She offers her insight, advice and reassurance of how to hold space for pregnancy loss and find the courage to conceive again.
