One in four pregnant women will experience a miscarriage, but how many seek support for dealing with the pain of losing a baby? Pyschologists Belinda Williams and Tawna Tourle from The Bumpy Road, a counselling service for mothers, give insight into the taboo subject.

For a full list of resources that Belinda and Tawna spoke to, as well as a list of the services available through The Bumpy Road, head to their website.
