Still A Part of Us: A podcast about pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and infant loss

Jun 6, 2021

Mom Bianca tells of her pregnancy with her 3rd child, Jalen Jeremiah, and complications with her cervix, which led her medical provider putting in a cerclage around 20 weeks. Some of the stitches had come out, causing Bianca a lot of pain and the beginning of labor. Jalen did not survive the birth and was stillborn on February 2021, likely due to the umbilical cord around his neck. Her pregnancy, Jalen's birth, and funeral were all during the time of the COVID pandemic.
