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

Sep 9, 2021

Mom Danielle talks about how she's grieved, mourned, and celebrated her daughter Lydia's life after she was stillborn at 30 weeks. She died due to an umbilical cord accident.

Danielle talks about her 2 pregnancies after loss (PAL) and how she coped with the anxiety, and encourages other pregnant moms to "count the kicks" using the Count the Kicks phone app.She also started a local Walk of Remembrance with her friend and fellow loss mom Emily as a way to honor Lydia.
