Join obs and gynae expert, Prof Dame Lesley Regan and The Times journalist Lucy Bannerman, to talk about miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

One in four women experience miscarriage or pregnancy loss in their lifetime, yet this devastating issue is often little understood or discussed openly. Losing a pregnancy is different for everyone and affects whole families and communities as well as parents.

A leader in women’s health with a special interest in miscarriage, Prof Regan will talk about the experience of pregnancy loss, moving from the biology and physical experience to the emotional impact. Lucy will share her own experience of miscarriage, as recently published in her incredibly powerful article in The Times.

We want to open up the conversation and shine a light on the issue so welcome questions to be sent in beforehand to events@wellbeingofwomen.org.uk. There will also be live Q&A.
