Danielle Nicole shares her story including a blighted ovum miscarriage, fibroids, a burst cyst and the Tiny Hearts Remembered Organization.
In episode #144, Danielle shares her personal story of loss. Danielle experienced the miscarriage of her first pregnancy at home, around 9 weeks gestation. She found out (years later) that her loss was related to a blighted ovum, and since this time in 2016 she has experienced several other setbacks including a burst cyst and fibroids. Based on her wants and needs following her miscarriage, Danielle founded Tiny Hearts Remembered – a nonprofit organization with the mission of decreasing the negative effects of pregnancy loss.
We discuss the importance of education, support, and advocacy related to pregnancy loss, as well as how the medical response to miscarriage can create feelings of loneliness and confusion.
Topics Discussed: loss of first pregnancy, high HCG levels, spotting, pain in early pregnancy, miscarriage at home, blighted ovum, nightmares, March of Dimes, LEEP procedure (Loop electrosurgical excision procedure), burst cyst, fibroids, memorializing miscarriage
Tiny Hearts Remembered has a Facebook group and hosts a support group once/month.
