Maternity Matters podcast: Pregnancy after loss




Lauren Hall-Riggins lost her first baby when she was 33 weeks and one day pregnant.

"It the greatest anguish, shock and pain," Lauren said.

She eventually turned to the Kate Cares Stillbirth Assessment Program, from Riley Children's Health, to learn what may have caused this tragic outcome.
