Megan thank you for talking about infertility and loss. Everyone who talks about it helps break the stigma. I am 1 in 4. I was so happy when Kevin said that you did have your baby girl .

So glad that Megan’s story finally got on the podcast! It was so moving to hear in person, and equally moving to hear again now. Hooray for little Olivia! 🙂

Thank you so much for airing my story!

For anyone who experiences miscarriage or struggles with infertility: a friend told me this after hearing me tell at the event and it was comforting. “If you really, really want to be a parent, you will be. You. Will. Be.” There are many paths to parenthood, and someday, you too will find yourself tired, covered in slobber, and grateful.

Knowing that Megan’s story was a few years old, I was waiting with bated breath to hear if Kevin would announce that her pregnancy had been a successful one during the last segment (I was very much hoping that it had!). I have a now 5-year-old “Rainbow Baby” myself and I was amazed by how many of my friends and family came forward with their miscarriage stories (some happening very late in the pregnancy) after mine. It’s something that happens so frequently that so few talk about!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
