Ep 112: Liz Pryor on the Shame of Teenage Pregnancy

Author, speaker, relationship and life advice expert Liz Pryor opens up about her experience of getting pregnant at 17 and being sent away to a home for pregnant teens by her mother. Liz describes the shame her parents felt about her pregnancy and how it impacted her so strongly that she kept the experience a secret for 28 years when she finally shared it with her siblings and friends. Although being sent off alone to have her baby, giving it up for adoption and then hiding it from everyone for so many years was extremely difficult, Liz explains that it shaped who she is as a person and as a parent and led her on a path of helping others.
