Kiley Hanish knows the pain of losing a child. She and her husband are creators of the Emmy-nominated film “Return to Zero,” which is based on their personal experience with their son Norbert, who was stillborn.
"Another [misconception] is that pregnancy loss shouldn’t hurt emotionally — the woman didn’t really know her baby," Hanish says. "Women are expected to 'get over it' and not let the loss affect them."
Sharing their stories of child loss can help women realize it is perfectly reasonable to feel terrible after a miscarriage. Hanish is also helping women who have miscarried in her role as founder of the nonprofit organization, Return to Zero: H.O.P.E., where her mission is to transform the culture of perinatal loss through awareness, education and support.
