The Joyful Mourning - A Podcast for Women Who Have Experienced Pregnancy or Infant Loss

Jan 27, 2022

This is part 2 of a 2 part interview with Megan Gamboa. Last week in Part 1, Megan shared the story of her son Levi and the life-limiting diagnosis of Trisomy 13 she received for him, what it looked like for her to make the decision to carry him to term and how she advocated for his life with her medical team. Megan shared her unique perspective about navigating the medical system after receiving a life-limiting diagnosis as well as very practical advice about how she did this. If you have not listened to Part 1 make sure to skip back and listen before diving into Part 2. 

This week in Part 2 Megan is sharing about what her experience was like returning to work as a physical therapist working in the same hospital where her son both lived and died. Her wisdom and honesty about this is going to be so helpful for you as it holds applicable ideas to what it looks like to return to that which was the old normal – whether you are returning to a workplace or not.

In this Part 2 we also discuss marriage, Megan’s faith journey and her mental and emotional health journey after loss. And one of my favorite questions that Megan answered was how her grief has changed over the last 3 years – I can’t wait for you to hear her answer and be encouraged about your own grief journey.. 

This episode is tender and honest and will remind you that no matter what your life after loss looks like, you are not alone.
