Ladies, we need to talk...about the '12 week rule'

LadiesWeNeedToTalk 1200x800

The first trimester of a pregnancy can often be the hardest, so why do so many women feel the need to stay quiet? And what if the answer — miscarriage — is the reason we should be talking about pregnancy earlier?

The latest episode of ABC podcast, Ladies, we need to talk, discusses the unwritten '12 week rule' that leaves so many women feeling alone and without support after experiencing a miscarriage.

Sands is really pleased to have been part of this conversation, with our General Manager Improving Bereavement Care, Anita Guyett, and Sands mum Samantha Rowe speaking to host Yumi Stynes about this emotional, but important topic.
