Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope

I found a non profit website called Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope. It was started by a woman who had a miscarriage and realized common miscarriage/infant loss/still birth was, but how little it was talked about. She started this site where people could write about their baby loss experiences to show how many women it affects. It's really good, and is helping me a lot. 

Here's the link: http://facesofloss.com/about/welcome-2

  • @sassafras, that's such a sad story but so glad you got your take home baby!

     I have been debating on writing about my m/c on my blog, but I really think the story belongs on the Faces website. We aren't alone! There are also support groups and such, and resources for family and friends. It's a great site. I'm glad I could share!

    I felt good by sharing my story. I actually talk about it a lot now that I am able to. It happens more than people think and it makes me feel better to talk about it. Thanks for reading!

     

  • Thank you so much for sharing this website. It's so sad, but it is always important to remember we are not alone in our struggles.

  • Thank you so much. I am still very nervous considering what happened with my first pregnancy. My daughter was also born at 34 weeks due to pre-e. Pregnancy and I don't really go well together...
  • I like the website a lot...but...it just scared the crap out of me! It's says that if you've had two consecutive miscarriages, your chance of another is 40%. :( This makes me scared to try again.
