Get Pregnant Naturally


Jul 12, 2021

Sheri Johnson joins us today as we're digging into how to heal from miscarriage.

I regularly speak with women who have experienced miscarriage and recurrent miscarriage. Many times they may not even have shared that they are pregnant (i.e. we wait for the magic 12-week date to announce), which may lead to further isolation.

These intense feelings of loss and grief can be overwhelming. All too often these feelings can be suppressed and misunderstood by friends and family.

I’m excited to welcome Sheri Johnson to the podcast! Sheri is a Holistic Nutritionist and Spiritual coach. She’s the creator of Journey to Joy After Miscarriage and the Love & Loss Podcast.

In this episode you'll learn:

1) The top myths surrounding miscarriage and why these are not helpful.

2) Suggestions to feel better after miscarriage so you can cope and honor your feelings

3) How to navigate emotions surrounding miscarriage so that you can move forward when you are ready.
