“Whether it’s you or someone you know, we’ve all been touched by the tragedy of pregnancy and infant loss. Knowing what to say and how to help your family member or friend can make a big difference in his or her grieving process,” said Lesley Vance, teleconference host and author of Infertility Journeys: Finding Your Happy Ending.  “About one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, and SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) is the leading cause of death in babies in the United States. Any loss of a child can leave parents, family and friends devastated,” Vance added.

Award Winning Journalist and Anchor Kathleen Bade at FOX 5 News in San Diego invited Lesley to be a guest on Kathleen’s “Anchor Mom” segment, talking about how to cope when you or someone you love experiences a miscarriage.
