E34: How to Survive a Miscarriage with Karin Holmes


Karin Holmes miscarried her baby after just six and a half weeks of pregnancy. Her miscarriage and the trauma of a necessary D&C plunged her into the crashing, lonely isolation of an invisible loss where she blamed herself for failing her baby and couldn't figure out how she was supposed to grieve. She's speaking on the uniqueness of miscarriage, what NOT to say to a mother who's miscarried, and her book, How to Survive a Miscarriage. Also this week, I'm talking about how once we grieve, we can't un-grieve... and the idea of grieving with your heart open.
