The Pregnant Therapist

A quick middle of the week post to share a great article–I really enjoy reading Dr. Jessica Zucker’s writing, and this one was especially interesting to me, so I thought I’d share.

I’ve posted the first paragraph, but please head over to the NY Times to read the rest. You can follow Dr. Zucker on twitter: @DrZucker

“Olivia sat across from me in my sunlit office, shadowed in grief. She’d been trying to get pregnant for years, and had been coming to see me for nearly all of them. After three miscarriages and two unsuccessful IVFs, she spoke softly of her strained marriage, wringing her hands in her lap. I shifted my weight from one leg to the other, listening intently; she shifted her eyes toward the window. But no amount of diversion could hide what sat between us: my unmistakably pregnant belly.”
