From a medical and legal standpoint, Jamie McCleary lost two pregnancies (both before 20 weeks), but from Jamie's point of view, she has lost two children. "To know that they meant so much and now they're reduced to nothing, it's hard. It's hard to reckon."
She tells Piya the shroud of secrecy around pregnancy loss was hard to handle. "Initially, I was furious because they were my babies. And I was so mad that I was the only one acknowledging them in the whole world," she says, "My friends would say 'Oh you don't have other babies' and it just infuriated me."
