Depth Podcast Episode 152: Courageously Expecting — Jenny Albers
Did you know that October 15th is pregnancy and infant loss Remembrance Day? Sadly for many women, this is part of their story. It was for me. I lost a baby in between my two boys. So, in October, I try to have an episode on the podcast that will come along and offer hope to a hurting heart. Maybe someone is walking through a pregnancy or infant loss or for those of you who have a friend or loved one walking through this, this episode will give you lots of wisdom on how to come alongside and support them.
I am really excited to have Jenny Albers on the podcast. She wrote a book called *Courageously Expecting: 30 Days of Encouragement for Pregnancy After Loss. For many women, when they receive the news that they are pregnant, it is very exciting. But for someone who has just recently walked through a loss, that news can bring up a lot of emotions: excitement because there is a hope that you will have another baby, but fear because it might happen all over again that you lose that baby. So I love that we are giving voice to this hard subject today. Jenny has so much wisdom and I cannot wait for you to hear from her.
Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Jenny’s book: *Courageously Expecting. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at jodirosser.com or you can click this direct link: https://kingsumo.com/g/uteqfr/courageously-expecting-book-giveaway
