"I had a Miscarriage and I was Relieved": Analysing Alternative Narratives of the Miscarriage Experience

  • Anu Lotay

Abstract

In recent years, the Internet has become an important source for
bringing awareness on the subject of miscarriage and reproductive
disruption (Murray 2015). For example, in July 2015, Mark
Zuckerberg, CEO and creator of Facebook, and his wife Priscilla
Chan disclosed their experience of miscarriage in a Facebook post
(“Mark Zuckerberg…” 2017), which garnered 1.7 million reactions,
as of this writing. This was followed by ordinary Facebook users
disclosing their personal stories of miscarriage and fertility issues in
the comments on this post.
