Early Pregnancy Loss

Miscarriages happen more frequently than most of us realize. For many, it’s an unexpected and difficult loss, even if the pregnancy wasn’t planned. On The Point, we discuss what we know and don’t know about the causes of miscarriage, the emotional toll it takes on couples, and how to suppor those who’ve experienced the loss. 

Mindy Todd hosts.  Joining us for this program are the following guests:

Shannon Outchcunis, founder of Cape Cod Baby, which offers supports to families through pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. She also offers bereavement supports.

Erin Hourahan, a therapist in private practice working with individuals struggling with bereavement and major mental illness.  She's at E.L.H. Counseling Services in Kingston.

Dr. Nisha David, an OBGYN physician.

Here's a link to Hope Floats Wellness, a bereavement center for families.
