Episode 20: Losing a Baby
Show Notes

Host Suzie Lawry-Hall explores loss as she sits down with Katy Herman, a mom who gave birth to a stillborn baby boy last year. The experience changed her family forever and made them part of a group we don’t often hear about: families who have lost babies due to a miscarriage or stillbirth. It’s a tragic reality — and one that affects about 1 in every 160 births, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Katy and her husband, Brian, share their experience to help families heal. Erin Parisio, a nurse in Enloe’s Labor & Delivery department who helps families through these heart-breaking situations, joins the discussion. They’ll go over loss, reasons these outcomes occur, resources families can turn to and more.
