Did you know that over 100,000 couples in Australia experience miscarriage every year?

Scary, yes. But, this is reality and really, what is the emotional impact after miscarriage and infertility? We talk all about this.

This episode is not only so close to my heart, but is something that EVERYONE needs to hear…weather you have gone through loss or infertility Sam Gabbi and Rachel are amazing woman following their hearts and doing so much amazing work.

The Pink Elephants Support network is continuing to grow but needs your support as well.

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • What The Pink Elephants is providing is something that medical practitioners are not providing but all resources have been written with and/or approved by obstetricians, holistic
  • The Pink Elephants has 12 ambassadors that have come onboard to mentor and support women who are going through infertility and/or loss.
  • It’s okay to remember to remember those important due dates – it’s okay to not want to let go.
