Hope this his links to what I want it to! Ashley Williams is an actress, I know her best as Victoria from How I Met Your Mother. She had a miscarriage and wrote this because she doesn't understand why most of us don't talk about it openly.
I loved what she says. I'm curious how y'all feel about her post and about how you handle this in your life.
I've never posted on social media about our losses but all of our close friends and immediate family know and most of my, and all of my husband's coworkers know. I try not to hide it but sometimes I do wish I could be more outspoken about IF and Loss. I definitely struggle with the defective, broken, incomplete labels and I'm sure that plays a part in not being more public with my struggle.
