Friends I can not even begin to explain to you how excited I am to finally share this with you all. Not only because I am horrible at keeping ‘secrets’ but because this project has been a dream of mine forever.
& it is finally here. & ready.
Let me introduce you to my new “baby” – my new mission & my new website:
Unspoken Grief ™ | understanding & support for perinatal grief
to create a safe space for individuals & families touched directly or indirectly by miscarriage, stillbirth & neonatal loss to share their stories, feelings and thoughts about grief, loss, hope or society. Our society has a lack of understanding and a level of discomfort with the grieving process surrounding the loss of a pregnancy and it is our hope that we bring these topics out into the open and create a community where families are supported, understood and remember our children who left too soon.
You all know my story behind my 10 miscarriages. I am lucky that i have all of you for support. I wish i had this blog 5 years ago when i had experienced my first miscarriage & had you all with me along the way.
I now have an outlet. I didn’t then.
Before Accustomed Chaos and my first post on miscarriage I never spoke too much about them. To anyone. Mostly because it just seemed that was the way it was ‘supposed to be’. I had no one to talk about the feelings during my miscarriage, after my miscarriage and my future. There was no where to talk about it.
Building this community & having all of you for support something started to evolve. I was getting emails from women who had just gone through a miscarriage, & emails from people who’s friend or sister had just gone through a miscarriage. They were looking to connect, looking for support & I was so honored they contacted me. I built a huge “community” (in private emails) & i was the only one getting the benefits from the community – because the other women didnt know each other.
That NEEDED to change.
Unspoken Grief is a group blog, support network, community, forum & resource page for ANYONE touched directly or indirectly by miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal loss. A safe place to talk about your children, your grief, your fears, hopes, dreams and feel connected to others who have been ‘there’. Discussions about your real life – in the moment or in the past or for the future.
YOUR stories. Posted by you. Supporting each other in our perinatal grief – the good, the bad & the ugly. Building a community where this is OK to talk about – where we can feel understood and supported. Changing society’s perception of the lasting effects of miscarriage, stillbirth & neonatal loss.
You are able to post as often or as little as you want. The community is there whenever you need it. Working to bring perinatal grief out of the closet. Support for each other and the understanding that we are not alone.
That this is ok to talk about. That this is important.
I have a million other dreams for this new site that will slowly evolve as the community grows. I am so excited to learn from each other and build a great network for a grief that is so misunderstood.

Thank you so much to all of you who have supported me as I developed this dream. Thank you to those who have registered & posted already & thank you all for support! It means the world to me.Share This Post: Tweet
