How to Survive the Emotional Impact of Prenatal Loss and Trauma
Good morning to all you beautiful mamas out there,
I'm so excited to be a part of an amazing event coming up next month. On Sunday, March 4th, there will be a presentation and panel discussion at the Jewish Child & Family Services in the West Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. The awesome Mara Tesler Stein - a psychologist and author in Chicago - will be discussing how to cope with emotional hardships that come with prenatal loss and trauma. I'll be speaking on the panel and sharing my experience with miscarriage as well.
As an observant Jewish woman myself, I've learned that our experiences with prenatal loss and trauma are nuanced and can differ depending on the communities we live in. While the discussion will focus on the experiences of Jewish women, there are many underlying themes we can all relate to. No matter where we live, we all need non-judgmental support, empathy, and understanding.
I'm so happy that our last article on miscarriage could offer some comfort and support to the women who read it, and I know this event will do the same. If you have any additional thoughts, ideas, and insights you'd love to see included in the discussion, please feel free to leave a comment here or on our Facebook page or Insta. Check out more information in the flier below.
Thank you to Ohel Sarah, Daughters of Israel, and JCFS for putting on this special event!
