We like to present happy stories: powerful birth experiences, sovereign womanhood revealed, stories about finding truth and power in sometimes difficult unfoldings of events.
Our biggest fear, as mothers, is to lose a child. Even if that loss happens at the beginning of pregnancy, it is something we feel deep in our bones and our hearts.
My guest is a woman who wants to break the stigma of speaking about miscarriage and baby loss. She tells her story of losing her baby months before he was supposed to be born. His birth taught her many things, and her strength is a lesson to me.
