The Pregnancy Loss Club

So what do we do? Besides recognizing and seeking help for this guilt, we must begin to recognize that we aren’t alone. Only then can the “don’t talk about fight club” stigma disappear, and stories and support emerge. Let’s shed light on the shame that comes with this tragedy and begin a conversation about it. Brené Brown, an expert researcher on shame, says the antidote to shame is acceptance, courage, and empathy. She says we need to “show up and be seen in our pain.” So that means the playgroup and mommy night topics must shift from the latest parenting styles to being vulnerable and talking about our miscarriages.
