I Am One In Four: Understanding Pregnancy Loss [INFOGRAPHIC]

One of the most common reactions I get when I tell people that I'm a stillbirth mom who own a jewelry and gift company supporting bereaved parents is, "Oh, I had no idea that still happens!"

And really, it's not a surprise, given that pregnancy loss, including miscarriage and stillbirth, is something we don't talk about as a culture. Believe me, I get it. Before my husband and I had our own loss, I would have had no idea what to say to someone in similar circumstances - I completely understand the impulse to want to stay silent and avoid upsetting others.

The problem, as I mentioned in my post on the story behind Carry Your Heart, is that if we stay silent - whether as loss parents or as the people who support them - we risk having our unique needs go unrecognized and unmet.

To help share how common miscarriage and stillbirth really are - yes, even in today's age of modern medicine - I put together the infographic below titled "I Am One In Four: Understanding Pregnancy Loss."
