    S5, E9 - Emma Whitney - @emmatheembryologist - recurrent miscarriage, TFMR

    In this episode we chatted to the wonderful Emma Whitney aka Emma The Embryologist who works at The Evewell Clinic.

    She talk to us about her role as an embryologist but also about her own journey of recurrent loss, including chemical pregnancy, termination for medical reasons and surgical management of miscarriage. We discuss managing this grief alongside caring for living children and also how this trauma can affect our partners. Emma talked about the difficulties of managing work while navigating her own experiences over the years.

    S5, E8 - Sarah Doolin - Neonatal death - Group B Strep

    This weeks guest is an absolute warrior, Sarah Doolin. After the death of her baby Ezrah she has worked tirelessly to campaign, fundraise and raise awareness in Ezrah’s name. She found that it gave her the focus, distraction and purpose that she needed when navigating life after loss. However as the month’s ticked by she realised that she hadn’t actually been focussing on her grief and personal recovery so decided to join our Pathway To Recovery course for some self care and wellbeing focus. It helped her immensely and she wanted to give back to the community by sharing her story.

    Below are some useful links:

    There were tears and laughter as they each shared the own personal stories of loss. We cover a variety of topics including endometriosis, missed miscarriage, PCOS, ectopic pregnancies, irregular periods, navigating difficulties within the family network and much more.

Everything I needed

This podcast was everything I needed after my missed miscarriage and the months after where were ttc again. My feeling were so validated while still giving me a place to laugh and find hope.

Despite not being on the top 30 list…

Your podcast is the first I found and listened to. I just found out about my missed miscarriage and this was the most helpful thing I’ve done today. Thank you for sharing your stories. I’m going through such similar thoughts and feelings, it was like listening to my own brain, and to know I’m not alone was so much more comforting than I ever thought it’d be.

Amazing

Unfortunately I joined the gang on March 19th of this year. I’m happy to have found other women to listen to speaking about their journey with loss. I couldn’t have asked for something more helpful, honest, and real. Thank you for creating this family to support each other.
