In this episode Jennie eloquently explores and unravels many of the emotional veins of miscarriage. On Jennie’s path to motherhood she suffers four devastating miscarriages before staying pregnant with her son, aided (we think) by progesterone pessaries. Being an award-winning health journalist, Jennie has an unending supply of fascinating fertility tidbits to share and her own musings on loss are so genuinely poignant and relatable. We discuss the 12 week rule, why Jennie doesn’t like the term “chemical” pregnancy, how it feels to be 1 in 100 and suddenly go from “it’s just bad luck” to “something is wrong here”, the role progesterone pessaries play (even when your own hormonal supply looks sufficient), the theory that some women's bodies will accept "any old embryo" and so much more!
