Clinical psychologist Eric Munnik shares insights on pregnancy loss

Clinical Psychologist Dr Erica Munnik shared some insights about how the public eye can worsen pregnancy with Briefly News. She said:

"The challenges with pregnancy loss are often worsened by being in the public eye, especially if one is not allowed to take time out to rest to allow the body time to heal physically and on an emotional level to deal with the trauma of losing your baby.
"The public might be seen as a secondary stressor who can judge and form opinions, making it difficult to find a space to deal with the loss. Conversely, it is also essential to acknowledge that women might feel that it is assisting in their bereavement process to publicly speak about their loss and how the loss is impacting their lives.
