Beyond the Loss Podcast

Episode #15 – Real Talk on Cultural Identity & Early Pregnancy Loss

This week, Aditi and Danyelle welcome Rebecca Foshole-Luke to the podcast. Rebecca is a forensic social worker who works with parents/guardians providing advocacy, education, and support as they navigate the child welfare legal system.

She hopes that sharing her story and experience with pregnancy loss, it will allow for more openness to talking about pregnancy loss and create more spaces for support for women and families. Together, the three discuss the treatment of racialized persons when seeking treatment and the different ways backgrounds can impact the experience of loss.

Shelagh was exposed to bereavement and deep grief at an early age and it left her with a profound sense of how fragile life is and how we need to find joy and light wherever we can.
