One Bad Mother
Dr. Jessica Zucker

Yes, we are a comedy show, but... There is no clever way to say it. This week, Biz and Theresa talk about miscarriages. Theresa shares her experience and together we explore what it's like to go through a pregnancy loss, or have a friend experiencing pregnancy loss, in a culture that doesn't seem to offer much in the way of acknowledgment or support. Clinical psychologist Dr. Jessica Zucker, whose focus is on women's reproductive and maternal mental health, joins us to talk about her own miscarriage and her efforts to make this a less taboo topic with her #IHadAMiscarriage campaign.

I am so glad that you are discussing miscarriage. It couldn't have come at a better time for me. We just moved from San Diego to my husband's hometown of Omaha, and the last time that we visited I was pregnant, but that ended in miscarriage. We ended up getting pregnant soon after and our daughter turned 3 yesterday. The trouble is that we keep running into people and they say "oh yeah, you were pregnant the last time we saw you!" Ugh. I'm usually not afraid to bring the subject up, but I'm totally out of my element here in Nebraska and it's been a sadness that we don't want to have to revisit. Let's normalize miscarriage! Thanks ladies!
