Navigating the trauma of loss

Navigating the trauma of loss

15 October 2021 By Robyn Tongol

For International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, two senior legal professionals discuss their experiences with stillbirth and infertility, respectively. (Content warning: this episode may be distressing for some listeners. Discretion is advised.)

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Holding Redlich partner Alexandra Tighe and LOD head of marketing and communications (Asia-Pacific and the Middle East) Anita Thompson, who both return to the show to reflect on their experiences with stillbirth and infertility, respectively, the trauma that arises as a result of such heartache, and the number of Australian women who go through similar experiences.

The trio also delve into whether or not ingrained personality traits of lawyers might exacerbate the heartache of such experiences, how best employers can support their staff, the role of male colleagues in better supporting women as well as their personal guidance for any lawyer who experiences such heartache and how to find hope.

Help is available via SANDS or Pink Elephants for those seeking support in pregnancy loss and via Mercy Perinatal for those seeking information or to support research into prevention of loss.
