We Need To Talk About Miscarriage: My Story of Loss, Grief, Acceptance, and Fertility Treatments

Miscarriage. It’s something we don’t think will happen to us. So, when it does, it completely changes us. When we tried to get pregnant with our second child, we ran into some issues. We had no problem getting pregnant, but we couldn’t sustain the pregnancies. BEfore long, we had miscarried three times and we were put in the 1% of couples who miscarry concurrently. To deal with the guilt, sadness, and everything else that comes with losing three pregnancies, my fertility doctor asked me to write a book about my experiences. And this book is the result of that task.

In this book, I talk about the feelings, emotions, and guilt you go through after miscarriages with the goal of making the topic something we can talk about as women. I offer this book as part of my keynote speech about the topic. Learn more about the keynote here.

Hi there! My name is Malene  Jorgensen and welcome to my website. I’m the founder of Little Munchkins and I started Little Munchkins after suffering three miscarriages on our journey to get pregnant with our second child. I felt very alone and wanted to create a place where we talk about taboo topics to make the conversation as normal and common as miscarriages are.

I’m an entrepreneur and business author, but most importantly, I’m a mom. To hire me for speaking or writing projects, please visit my speaker page from the menu and contact me via the contact page. Thank you!

The Boss and The Babies

In the summer of 2016, I got a positive pregnancy test. Like so many people, I was excited. I made a slew of phone calls, jumped around and made my husband come home from work. But the next day – reality hit. I was a business owner and entrepreneur, but now I had to figure out a way to make it all work. And I kept hearing: “women can’t have it all” – all being a happy relationship, a baby, a career, and a functioning family. It took some planning and reworking. This keynote is all about having it all on your terms.

The key lessons the audience will take away from this keynote include preparing for a baby before the arrival, managing your business while you are recovering from the birth, using content to keep your business thriving while you care for the baby, and how to slowly get back on track with being a working mom – or work-at-home mom. I offer this book as part of my keynote speech packages, which you can learn more about here.

My Personal Birth Stories

The Little Munchkins Podcast

The Little Munchkins podcast is one where taboo topics are discussed. The podcast was created by me after I went through 3 miscarriages in less than a year. Even though the miscarriages were before 12 weeks, they weren’t welcomed. Going through three losses was tough for both me and my family, and my doctor encouraged me to write a book. The book eventually became We Need To Talk About Miscarriage: My Story of Loss, Grief, Acceptance, and Fertility Treatments.

This podcast continues to talk about tough topics that women should talk more about and not feel ashamed to do so. The show first launched in early 2020 with the first season, which consisted of 10 episodes. The second season followed shortly after.
