*TRIGGER WARNING: MISCARRIAGE AND STILLBIRTH
These are the stories they tell us not to talk about out in the world. These are certainly the stories we were taught not to bring into our traditional workplaces. There is usually no time-off for a pregnancy loss. Women all over the world, women you know, have faced heartbreaking loss and defeating infertility and woke up the next morning and went to work.
Emem and I are speaking about this topic because silence helps no one.
Our resilience, our spirit, our determination, our ability to try, try again… these are the stories that not only shape the spirit of motherhood, but are also part of what makes us powerful leaders.
If you are suffering or have suffered from pregnancy loss or stillbirth, you are not alone. We see you and we are here to hold a candle of hope for you.
