Title:Let's talk about miscarriage | Regan Parker | TEDxPortland

NOTE FROM TED: This talk contains a graphic description of miscarriage, which may be upsetting to viewers. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: In this profoundly courageous talk, Regan aims to change the way we talk about pregnancy loss and miscarriage. She confronts the unmentionable, gives a voice to the unspoken, and challenges a taboo topic in our culture. Miscarriage happens in around 1 in 4 known pregnancies, with 85% of those happening in the first trimester. But do we talk about it? No. Why is that? One of the reasons is that we are taught to believe that pregnancy loss is private. Another is that it doesn't really matter because, "you can have another one." Women experiencing this tremendous loss need support, compassion, and understanding. Miscarriage is part of the universal human experience and we can redefine how we talk about it and support one another. Regan was part of a historic 7,000+ attendee Year 10 experience. After three reschedules due to the Pandemic, our Core Organizing Team persevered through 1,164 days of planning and execution to produce the event for Portland, OR. ****** With special thanks to the University of Oregon for presenting partnership, a world class stage design provided by Meyer Pro Inc, an incredible legacy bound Event Book provided by Premier Press and to the creative digital craft provided by Enjoy the Weather & Victory Creative. All of our Partners and event history can be found at Regan is a mother, lawyer and author whose debut memoir, (Mis)carriage, pursues her deeply driven commitment to open the dialogue around pregnancy loss and to change the way we heal from miscarriage. She believes in the power of words and stories, and that healing can come from telling the truth. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
