In today's episode, we continue our discussion on miscarriage and pregnancy loss. I cover helpful tools for navigating our emotions after a pregnancy loss, including honoring your grief, building your support circle, navigating feelings of shame, and self-care. I also review the themes covered in Dr. Brené Brown's book, Rising Strong, and how her research can be vital to our healing process.
