March is Pregnancy After Loss Awareness month, and Pregnancy After Loss Support magazine (PALS) ran a campaign, including a photo challenge for the week of March 9-16. I helped organize this event and wanted to gather all of my images and thoughts to share once it was complete.
Pregnancy, in general, comes with a lot of risk and anxiety, but for those who have experienced a loss, the risks are more pronounced, and the anxiety and fear can be unbearable. Pregnancy and infant loss is being acknowledged more, but so many families still suffer through the grief, then anxiety of a subsequent pregnancy, alone. At PALS, we’re working very hard to walk side-by-side with women, with families, through this very challenging process. The more #PALAwareness, the less alone the the women in this community will feel.
