No. 54 | My Miscarriage Story

In honor of Infant and Pregnancy Loss Awareness month, I am breaking the silence of the stigma surrounding loss. I am sharing my own story in detail in an effort to help other women feel less alone and to raise awareness on this often disenfranchised type of loss. I experiences the loss of my 4th pregnancy at 11 weeks and 1 day. I found out at 10 weeks 5 days that I would miscarry. The entire experience has been very difficulty and filled with so much grief and sorrow. I only hope that by sharing my story, other women will feel less alone.

This is an ultrasound picture taken mid-miscarriage. My body started to miscarry naturally, and then scan was done in the office prior to my manual vacuum aspiration (MVA). There was a lot of fluid and debris in my uterus here.

Stay tuned to more episodes this month from women sharing their own stories of loss. Thank you again to every person who reached out to me during this difficult time. It has meant the world to me.
