Description

Welcome to the My Best Mom Friend podcast. My name is Sandra, and I'm the virtual mom bestie you didn't even know you needed. I am here to empower you and give you permission to not love every layer of motherhood (without the guilt.) I'm here to be uncensored in my experience as a mom to help you realize what you're feeling is normal. I want every mom to feel seen, validated, and understood. Please make yourself comfortable, grab a cup and allow me to spill the tea on motherhood. Let's chat about all things motherhood. Follow along on Instagram for more: @mybestmomfriend

Life After Miscarriage with Guest Morgan Martin | Healing Empty Hands
00:50:36

Tune in as I interview Morgan Martin for the launch of her first book: Healing Empty Hands available 1/31. Morgan shares her experience of pregnancy after a loss, tips for women currently walking this path, how this experience questioned her faith, and more. 

Morgan's book is available for pre-order here and available in hardback and paperback on 1/31. 

You can connect with Morgan through Instagram and Facebook

Affirmations Morgan shared in the podcast:

1. Today I am pregnant and I love my baby

2. I am pregnant with a healthy, growing baby until I am told otherwise

3. My past is not my future and previous losses do not mean I will have future losses

4. Just because someone else is having a loss that doesn't mean I will. Miscarriage and loss are not contagious but fear can be.

5. Hope does not make bad things happen. I cannot jinx my pregnancy by getting my hopes up or by telling someone about it.

6. There is nothing I can change with worry. Worrying about what's not in my hands does not prevent it from happening. And if it happens again - God forbid - I know I can survive.
