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 not only lost a pregnancy my husband and I so desperately wanted but was laid off from my career of over seven years. These life-altering events happened a few days apart. I was left completely broken and 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.
