Normalizing The Conversation Around Pregnancy Loss

with podcast guest

Frieda Hoffman


Frieda Hoffman is a transformative coach and mediator, creative consultant, and entrepreneur with a passion for supporting women and courageous leadership. She’s the author of Carry Me: Stories of Pregnancy Loss, which details real stories about pregnancy loss from real women. Carry Me explores universal themes of grief, it unpacks the physical, emotional, and financial challenges of loss and the paradox of feeling alone while sharing a common experience.

In this episode, we talk about Frieda’s experience with pregnancy loss and how she has gotten to a place of being at peace with not becoming a mother, the social stigma around pregnancy loss, the difficulty with finding support after a loss, how we can start to normalize dialogue around pregnancy loss, and so much more.

Nearly everyone knows someone affected by pregnancy loss or we’ve experienced it ourselves, yet most people are not comfortable discussing it even amongst friends and family. I think you’ll have a lot of takeaways from this conversation with Frieda that will be helpful for you or someone in your life who has experienced pregnancy loss.
