The Unexpected

The Journey to Our Pregnancies: Planned and Unplanned
by Juliet Koskoff

In the first episode of We Are Mothers, Juliet Koskoff shares her unexpected journey towards pregnancy. Told that women over 40 only have 5% chance of conceiving, Juliet brings us into her world of miscarriage and getting pregnant. The episode continues with a deeper conversation with Juliet on miscarriage and conceiving as well as snippets from the rest of Seasons 1’s mothers on their experiences getting pregnant.

"I had wanted her to go away, and she did. I knew it was not my fault, that sips of wine and discussions of abortion had not caused my miscarriage. But I felt responsible and I mourned her. I mourned all of the plans and dreams I had about her."
