Finding Hope After Miscarriage

38: Finding Hope After Miscarriage with Allison Schaaf

Have you or someone you know experienced a miscarriage?


This is so common, but unfortunately, it isn’t talked about nearly enough. So many women go through this event in their life and often don’t feel like they can share it with their friends or family.


In this episode, we are changing that. Allison Schaaf is back on the show to talk about miscarriage.


Chef & Dietitian Allison Schaaf is the founder of Prep Dish, a gluten-free, paleo & keto meal planning service that helps busy moms get dinner on the table with ease. She is also the founder of Miscarriage Hope Desk, a hopeful space for those struggling with recurrent pregnancy loss. 


Allison holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Nutrition from Johnson & Wales University, a Master’s Degree in Nutrition Communications from Tufts University, and became a Registered Dietitian at New England Medical Center. Allison has been featured on 50+ podcasts including Asian Efficiency, Entrepreneur on Fire, Smart Passive Income, Food Blogger Pro and more!


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • Allison’s story of her five miscarriages
  • The physical and emotional toll that is miscarriage
  • The lack of tools and resources for women
  • Why it’s important to realize you’re not alone
  • The pressure and overwhelm of healing after miscarriage
  • Why you need to work through your emotions in the way that works for you
  • The importance of staying open and tapping into your intuition


I am so glad that Allison created this space for women and shares it with us in this episode.


I can’t stress how important it is to have somebody in your life that will be a safe space for you. This is such a difficult thing to talk about, but keeping in your emotions can be even more damaging.
