Ep76 – Rachel Lohman – Finding Hope Again After Miscarriage

Last updated Dec 13, 2021 | 0 comments

In this episode, we discuss hope while grieving and how Rachel Lohman found a meaningful outlet for anxiety after pregnancy loss.

In episode #076, Rachel shares her personal story of loss and how her miscarriage prompted a new business venture in making earrings and the development of the Hope Again Collective.

Rachel Lohman started making earrings as an outlet for the anxiety she carried while being pregnant after the loss of her first child. The earrings were cute and fun, and friends started requesting to purchase them off of her Instagram. But something more was stirring in her heart as she made each pair of earrings.

A lover of stories who began writing news articles for fun as a 7-year-old, Rachel got the idea one July day: what if these earrings could tell stories of women who’ve walked through some of life’s hardest seasons and found hope again?

Rachel has been there. In 2017, she and her husband Mark lost their first baby to miscarriage. Almost overnight, an overwhelming journey of grief and wrestling match with hope ensued. While miscarriage impacts 1 in 4 pregnancies, most women feel alone in their experience. After Rachel shared her miscarriage story publicly, she was amazed at how many women of all ages and backgrounds came forward with their own stories of grief and finding the road to hope again.

Since then, Rachel has been passionate about empowering women to share their stories, and holding their hands as they find hope again. Re-discovering hope is powerful, but doing it collectively can be deeply redemptive.

Topics Discussed: miscarriage, grief, hope while grieving, how loss shapes us as women and mothers, pregnancy loss and faith, the importance of sharing your story of pregnancy loss, why sharing our stories matters, Hope Again Collective
