This week on MD for Moms, I’ll be interviewing Social Worker Ruth Gabay on coping after miscarriage or stillbirth. How can parents support one another and themselves following devastating loss? What words are appropriate when talking to other children about pregnancy loss? How can you best support a friend or family member suffering after losing a pregnancy? This is an incredibly painful topic that deserves attention. All these questions and more will be answered on this installment of MD for Moms.
