Women Discuss Personal Stories Of Their Miscarriages And The Stigma Surrounding Them

Posted: Updated:

As a blogger for Mama & Baby Love who helps women prepare to navigate motherhood, Stephanie Brandt Cornais thought she understood the pain of a miscarriage -- until it happened to her.

"I actually knew the stats and I knew how common it was, but what I didn't realize is how many women are not talking about it and how shame-filled women are about it, including myself," she said.

Cornais is one of several women who joined HuffPost Live's Caitlyn Becker on April 28 to speak frankly about miscarriages, including the stigma surrounding openly discussing it and why women often blame themselves.
