Standing up to Stigma in Women’s Health Meet Up

It’s bad enough that women in the United States receive substandard care for common medical conditions, but the fact that miscarriage, infertility, and depression are also stigmatized is just heartbreaking. In this panel presentation, brave experts with personal stories to tell take aim at a social construct we can all work to tear down. Dr. Jessica Zucker, psychologist and creator of the #Ihadamiscarriage campaign, will talk about her experience destigmatizing pregnancy and infant loss. Author and leadership coach Dr. Camille Preston will address stigma related to infertility. Jen Schwartz, founder of Motherhood Understood, will discuss the stigma associated with postpartum depression and anxiety. Author, obstetrician, and digital health executive Dr. Adam Wolfberg, will moderate.
