When Pregnancy Gets Complicated
FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 2020
rePRO examines how one of the most complicated experiences of some women’s lives can get even more complicated.
A woman’s pregnancy or the path to get there does not define her. Topics include miscarriage, infertility, surrogacy, postpartum mental health, and policing pregnancy. It’s time to cancel the shame and embrace the realities.
