On A Serious Note: Pregnancy Loss

One of the hardest parts of my job is being aware of the shockingly high likelihood of pregnancy loss. I have seen so many women go through this, time and again, and it never gets easier. What stands out to me the most is the feeling of isolation that comes after. It is impossible to process on your own. There are no words that can sufficiently express your thoughts and feelings. How can anyone possibly understand what you’re going through?

I am sharing a post with you, written a very funny and brilliant woman, Jean Villepique. She just so happens to be my very first instructor ever at Second City. Improvisers generally have a unique take on life, and are able to take on any battle with humor, and guts. And I mean GUTS, like, chutzpah, balls, however you like to say it.

It is a wonderful read for anyone dealing with pregnancy loss, either personally, or with family and friends. I hope you can appreciate this post as much as I did. And please know that you are not alone.

In case you missed it, it’s right here.
