Now that they’re expecting their first child, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan are taking the opportunity to raise awareness about a challenge facing many prospective parents: miscarriage.
Chan and Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, know about this from personal experience. Chan, 30, had three miscarriages during their three-year marriage. On his Facebook page, Zuckerberg described how lonely and disheartening this was. By sharing what they’ve undergone, they hope to start a more open dialogue on the topic of miscarriage.
