Have you or anyone you know suffered from miscarriage?
This devastating loss occurs in approximately 1 out of every 4 pregnancies, so it’s much more common than you might think. And yet, the way it is dealt with by the medical community and workplaces is generally clinical and practical, leaving the couple to deal with the emotional fallout unsupported and alone.
Samantha Payne, Founder & CEO of charity Pink Elephants Support Network takes us through her own experiences of multiple miscarriages in the Australian healthcare system and how she courageously set up the Pink Elephant Support Network to help families receive the care and emotional support that she wished she had received when she needed it.
