In episode #116, Tatiana shares her story of personal loss. After a healthy first pregnancy, she was surprised when something didn’t feel right during her second pregnancy. After several ultrasounds, it was determined that she had a blighted ovum.
With very little information about what that meant, Tatiana had to do her own research. As a mental health provider herself (a licensed marriage and family therapist), Tatiana knew to ask for support even though it was not offered or readily available. She also had to learn how to communicate with her significant other and her family during this stressful time. Her experience has propelled her to work toward getting a perinatal mental health certification, so she can help other parents process their pregnancy losses.
As a result of this experience and her stress levels, Tatiana and her family needed to make drastic changes. They recently relocated, and with her decreased stress she was able to get pregnant again.
Topics Discussed: blighted ovum, stress, communication with your partner after miscarriage, talking with others about miscarriage, support after miscarriage, marriage and family therapy
