Zuckerberg and Priscilla’s
Miscarriage Note

Priscilla and Zuck became an inspiration for multiple women and couples who suffered miscarriages as they wrote, “Most people don't discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you - as if you're defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.”
