My Miscarriage Story

Content warning for pregnancy loss and suicidal thoughts.

During this episode of the Plus Mommy Podcast, I share miscarriage story with complete vulnerability.

From the joy of learning I was pregnant to the shock of experiencing a loss, I turned on my recorder and started telling my story.

This episode is unedited – it’s raw and real. I lost a pregnancy my husband and I so desperately wanted. In addition, I was laid off from my career of over seven years. These life-altering events happened a few days apart. As I was left completely broken, I fell into a deep depression.

When 1 in 4 pregnancies end in a loss and 1 in 5 people struggle with mental health, it’s powerful to share our stories and have our experiences normalized!

While I understand this episode might be triggering for some, if it helps just one person feel less alone it was worth sharing.

This is my miscarriage story.

I have been putting off listening to this podcast because I knew how raw and real you would be and I just wasn't ready to hear and feel that because I feel I haven't completely dealt with my miscarriage. Well, I finally got the emotional strength to listen to it and I feel like I healed a little more listening to you. Thank you, my friend. I call you that, because even though we have never met, you have helped me, strengthened me and given me the gratitude and confidence I needed in myself. Never thought I would find that through a podcast, Instagram or a website, but your vulnerability and authenticity has helped me in many ways.

Keep doing what you're doing. You are making a difference in people's life. I can truly attest to that because of how you have helped mine.

I can't even begin to explain how much your comment has touched my heart! I honestly wasn't sure how this episode would be received. I put off recording it because I knew it would be hard to do but something made me feel like I needed to do it. Your comment and other messages I've received have confirmed I did the right thing. I will continue to share the scary stuff if it helps others to feel less alone.

I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss BillieJean. I hope you do something nice for yourself after listening to this episode!
