About

Trying Again is a story of the usually silent 1 in 4.

Going through a miscarriage can feel very lonely; the Trying Again podcast opens up a conversation into issues surrounding miscarriage and baby loss in a hope to raise awareness of the research, community and people surrounding it.

Trying Again explores miscarriage through the eyes of journalist and host, Rachael Smith. As well as following real-life stories, the podcast is an opportunity to discuss topics such as the language and taboo surrounding miscarriage; when is it right to have sex again?; grief and how to say “Good Bye”; mental health issues; self-care and exploring the role men have in miscarriage.

This is a non-for-profit podcast. There’s also a community of people and charities who are helping to provide advice, facts and research information.

The podcasts genres are health, parenting and personal journal. The format is a mix of interview, storytelling and audio drama.
