Around 1 in 4 recognized pregnancies end in miscarriage - and this number most likely is even higher because many women miscarry before they realize they are pregnant. But even though miscarriage or pregnancy loss is so common, it makes it no less painful because it's not common for you.
Dr. Kate White, OB/GYN is on the podcast today to discuss this sensitive subject to bring understanding, compassion and hope to those who have experienced miscarriage or pregnancy loss. She is not only an OB/GYN that helps couples with this type of loss, but she is also a mom and a miscarriage survivor herself.
