On today's podcast, we're going to talk with Rose Rankin about grief and healing through pregnancy and infant loss.

Rose Rankin (she/her) is a full spectrum doula from Brooklyn, New York, who lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Rose focuses her work on parents who are experiencing a loss, have a pregnancy with a child who is incompatible with life, or have a child with a terminal condition. Rose has been on the other side of this work numerous times before and her mission is to provide the care that we sometimes never knew we needed when we are grieving.

We talk about Rose’s personal experience of pregnancy and infant loss, and how it inspired her to become a Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) doula. We also talk about Rose’s experience as a PAIL doula for her community and how to better support those who have experienced loss during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Content warning: We will mention grief, pregnancy complications, stillborn birth, miscarriage, late-term loss, and infant loss.
