How can we help a mother who has experienced pregnancy loss? What should we say? What should we not say? Our two special guests devote their lives to the wellness of mothers and have suffered pregnancy loss themselves: clinical psychologist Dr. Jessica Zucker and training midwife Georgina Blanchard. Our first guest Dr. Jessica Zucker specializes in women's reproductive + maternal mental health and serves on the Medical Advisory Council of "Every Mother Counts". She has contributed to PBS’s "This Emotional Life", and started the #IHadAMiscarriage hashtag campaign that went viral. Our second guest Georgina Blanchard is in her final year of Midwifery studies at the Midwifery Education Program at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. After our conversations, we clear the stage to share Georgina’s exquisite essay “Still Life” published in the Canadian journal “The Walrus", read by her sister, actress Rachel Blanchard with music by Georgina's husband John Showman. October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. We hope this episode helps in some small way. Please share with your mom community. x Ellie
