Brene Brown says that "owning your story is the bravest thing you'll ever do."
Talking about miscarriage can be painful, but it can also be healing. If you feel ready to share your story, RPLA would be honored to hear it. We will build out this page like a blog; adding new stories as we receive them. We chose the image above to look like a quilt. Together we hope to weave a shared narrative that will honor our pain, celebrate our strength, and remind us that we are not alone.
To have your story posted above please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can share as much or as little as you like - a moment, a memory, a full account, or advice for other women. If you'd like to share, but prefer to keep your name anonymous, please let us know in your email; we would prefer to list your first name.
We know the process of writing can be a challenge, so below are some prompts to help get you started.
Disclaimer: RPLA reserves the right to decline posting material we find inappropriate or offensive.
It's National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) and we're raising awareness for the 1-2% of couples for who experience recurrent pregnancy loss.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 during NIAW to support our research grant program and we'd love your help.
