It’s no secret that one of our favorite mamas is Michelle Obama. That’s why we got all the feels when she opened up about her past miscarriage, saying, ““I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them.” She also talked openly about her journey with IVF in an effort to let women in similar situations know they are not alone. And so our love grows.
