WPR063: Coping with Infertility and Pregnancy Loss with Parijat Deshpande

Do you ever wonder if you're doing the "right" things as a parent?

by Sarah Argenal

Episode Summary:

The topic we’re covering today is one that is really close to my heart. I first got to know Parijat Deshpande when I appeared on her podcast, Delivering Miracles®, to discuss my own experience with secondary infertility. Infertility and pregnancy loss are both topics that affect so many parents out there, and it’s just not talked about a lot. When I went through it myself, all I wanted was information and support about what I was going through, and I found both very difficult to find. But Parijat is on a mission to open up the conversation. She’s allowing us to shine a light on a very sensitive and difficult topic, and I’m so happy she was able to join us here to share her experience and her expertise.

Parijat Deshpande is the leading high-risk pregnancy expert who guides women to have a healthy pregnancy, even if they have complications, so they can give their baby a strong start to life. She is the host of Delivering Miracles®, a podcast about infertility, loss, high-risk pregnancy, prematurity and healing after baby comes home. She is also the author of Pregnancy Brain: A Mind-Body Approach to Stress Management During a High-Risk Pregnancy due out in 2018. Parijat is a clinically-trained therapist, a women’s wellness specialist and an experienced speaker on the impact of stress on health and wellness.
