The AnchorMOMS chat with soon-to-be-mama meteorologist Lauryn Ricketts.  Lauryn and Katie go back a decade to their first gigs in TV News. Fast forward, and Lauryn is a big success at NBC 4 Washington, but her path to motherhood has been anything but easy.  Lauryn opens up about losing her son late into her first pregnancy and how she navigated the unimaginable grief during a global pandemic.  Happily, she is now expecting another son but shares with the AnchorMOMS that her anxiety over the baby’s health continues.
