YOU ARE NOT ALONE

HI! I am so excited to share this brand spankin' new portion of my blog. After sharing my journey, I felt fated to create this page for my friends and readers who are going through a journey of miscarriage, infertility, infant loss, PPD, and PPA. A space where we can all come together, share our stories, and be a support system for one another. 

This is how it works, it's real simple. Each month I will be featuring someone's story on my website and IG. Please share your journey with our amazing W+P Readers so we can stand in support and solidarity within this community of strong women. 

 

Posting anonymous is still sharing - I will ask permission before posting anything! 

THIS MONTH'S FEATURE

Leanne, you are so brave for sharing your story. You are the true definition of strength. <3 

"It took my parents 15 years to have me. When I was in my 20’s I was diagnosed with PCOS and fibroids. So I was already up against not great odds. When my husband and I married we decided we didn’t want kids right away. Well, the universe had another plan. Though I didn’t know it at the time, I was already pregnant. After a few weeks of feeling weird I took a test. Being so early it said “unclear.” But, we both knew what this meant. My brothers wedding was coming up so we decided to keep it quiet until after the wedding. After the reception my husband and I were playing in bed and my worst fear began to happen. I miscarried quietly, only telling my husband. That was three years ago. I haven’t gotten pregnant since. Every month I wait with anticipation and it's always a crushing blow. All my friends are on their second or third baby. I was told last year I may not be able to conceive without medical help. I know this is just the beginning of my story. I just wish this part wasn’t so many chapters long..."
