Pregnancy Loss & Trying to Conceive + Motherhood, ft. Shamika G., Balanced Working Mama Podcast
While pregnancy and infancy loss are more common than we realize, its often a topic that goes undiscussed. Not talking about loss and challenges we face surrounding pregnancy only breed insecurity, shame, guilt, and other negative emotional experiences.
Today, we talk about Pregnancy Loss & Trying to Conceive + Motherhood. This is such a difficult but important topic that you must hear.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
-Mental and emotional experiences one might face while trying to conceive or while experiencing pregnancy loss.
-What supports are useful for mothers who are experiencing difficulties with trying to conceive or experiencing pregnancy loss.
-Tips and strategies for how you can begin to cope if you are experiencing challenges while trying to conceive or have experienced pregnancy loss.
This episode features Shamika G., a hard-working mama of a beautiful 1-year-old girl! Shamika is open and shares more about her challenges with trying to conceive for three years and the mental/emotional toll this experience produced. Additionally, Dr. Amber speaks about her own experiences of pregnancy loss twice, and what she learned from those experiences.
