How to cope and hope after a miscarriage, with Tasha BlasiOne in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, yet so few people talk about it. You don't need to feel alone! During this free, 45-minute webinar, fertility coach Tasha Blasi will discuss tips and strategies for immediate forward motion after a miscarriage.

"I remember when I had mine, I felt sad and confused," Blasi says. "Was it weird to mourn the loss of a potential baby I had never met? How was I going to go back to work and fake a smile when all I wanted to do was be alone and cry? When am I going to feel a little bit normal again?" 

After recovering from her miscarriage and years of helping women who have had miscarriages, Blasi has come up with a strategy for immediate coping mechanisms and long-term hope and empowerment.

Register here; webinar information will be emailed directly to all registrants. If you can't make the live webinar, a recording will be sent to you!

Didi Lewis Didi joined NPN in 2010 while researching school options for her son and seeking support from other working moms. When her daughter came along the following year, her fondness for NPN, its activity-packed event calendar, and its active discussion board grew. With a JD and certificate in Family Law from DePaul College of Law, her dedication to the local parent community in her downtown neighborhood, and her passion for advocating family life in the big city (she’s also a proud CPS grad), Didi happily joined the NPN staff in 2013. As School Choice, Programming and Outreach Manager, Didi is excited about helping Chicago parents learn about educational options within the city and discover all of the amazing benefits NPN has to offer for new and growing urban families. After spending her entire life as a north-sider, Didi now lives in the South Loop with her south-sider husband Rod and their city kids, RJ and Rio.
