Coping With Miscarriage and Loss - Happy as a Mother

Coping With Miscarriage and Loss


with Psychologist Dr. Jessica Zucker



Isolation, loneliness, self-blame, shame, and guilt. These are all things that, unfortunately, a lot of women report feeling in the aftermath of a miscarriage and loss. One in four pregnancies will experience a miscarriage. There is nothing that anyone did to cause this. However, our culture needs to recognize that grief and loss are real, so women will not feel intimidated to share their feelings.  In this episode, Jessica and I discuss the stigma around miscarriage, why our society needs to talk about them, and how to support someone experiencing a loss.

Jessica Zucker is a Los Angeles-based psychologist specializing in reproductive and maternal mental health. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, NBC, New York Magazine, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Glamour, Instyle, BuzzFeed, ELLE, SELF, TIME, VICE, among others, and she has been featured on Good Morning America, The Today Show, CNN, and NPR. Jessica is the creator of the #IHadaMiscarriage campaign, a multi-platform effort. Her first book comes out in March 2021: I HAD A MISCARRIAGE: A Memoir, A Movement.
