    We Could Have Let Our Son's Death Destroy Us But That's Just Not Who We Are - with Sarah Morris (IVF, unicornuate uterus, ANA, miscarriage, endometriosis, stillbirth, twin pregnancy)

    We Could Have Let Our Son's Death Destroy Us But That's Just Not Who We Are - with Sarah Morris (IVF, unicornuate uterus, ANA, miscarriage, endometriosis, stillbirth, twin pregnancy)

    In this episode Sarah shares very openly and evenly her journey through IVF, ANA, being diagnosed with a unicornuate uterus, the loss of her perfectly healthy son, and the double rainbow that followed.
    I messaged Sarah before releasing this episode as I wanted to know if the term “stillborn” was how she refers to her son Michael so I could use the appropriate term in this episode description.
    She thanked me for asking, and said that even though her son was born alive, he had passed by the time a medical professional saw him and so he is technically classed as a stillborn. She gave me the go ahead to use the term.
    So even though I have. I also don’t want to rob Sarah of anymore than she has been. I don’t want to ignore those seconds that Michael lived. I don’t want to use a term just because it’s easy or technically apt. I want to honour her story, Michaels story. So I’m sharing this here, so we can all hear and know, that “stillborn” does not always encapsulate the exact experience of this type of loss.
    And so that we can truly understand the extent of Michael’s life.

    There's An Implication That If You Avoid Certain Foods; Don't Smoke; Don't Drink, Your Pregnancy Will Thrive - with Jennie Agg (recurrent miscarriage, progesterone, women's health journalist)

    There's An Implication That If You Avoid Certain Foods; Don't Smoke; Don't Drink, Your Pregnancy Will Thrive - with Jennie Agg (recurrent miscarriage, progesterone, women's health journalist)

    In this episode Jennie eloquently explores and unravels many of the emotional veins of miscarriage. On Jennie’s path to motherhood she suffers four devastating miscarriages before staying pregnant with her son, aided (we think) by progesterone pessaries. Being an award-winning health journalist, Jennie has an unending supply of fascinating fertility tidbits to share and her own musings on loss are so genuinely poignant and relatable. We discuss the 12 week rule, why Jennie doesn’t like the term “chemical” pregnancy, how it feels to be 1 in 100 and suddenly go from “it’s just bad luck” to “something is wrong here”, the role progesterone pessaries play (even when your own hormonal supply looks sufficient), the theory that some women's bodies will accept "any old embryo" and so much more!

On the road to baby

The womb room podcast is my safe place. 🤍 It’s where I go when I need to feel like someone truly gets me and understands what I am going through. On my tough days on this journey to baby, I plug in my headphones and find myself feeling seen and validated by the women on this show. Each episode is unique and offers a different story regarding fertility, motherhood and trying to conceive. Laksmi’s lovely and calming voice always makes me feel at peace and the work she is doing in this space is truly needed and special. I hold so much gratitude and love for the host of this podcast and the ways in which this show has lifted my spirits, countless times. I look forward to each new episode and will always be a big supporter of this podcast. Don’t forget to subscribe & support this amazing mama and her efforts into making this podcast a reality for all of us!

So Beneficial

As a mom who struggles to conceive, I have one living child, and two angels - 1 first trimester miscarriage and 1 loss at 23 weeks due to complications and TFMR, I just need to say that hearing these stories is so beneficial for my mental health. This podcast makes me realize that as crappy of a “club” as this is to be in, I am not alone. Thank you for doing what you do!
