Founding Editor of Healing after Pregnancy Loss
Hi there! I’m Anna and I’m the Mama to four babies taken too soon.
This photo of me was taken one week after the last time I lost a pregnancy in May 2017. You see me smiling, but you and me both know that that photo does not tell the whole story!
Although I could still find moments of joy in life, I was also sore physically from surgery, and emotionally from the weight of another loss. Like you, I had to put on a brave face for my family and try and embrace my life again. It wasn’t easy and I was desperate at times for someone to grab hold of my hand and guide me through it rather than just point me to the odd signpost I saw on the way.
That’s why I have created this site – for you, dear Mama (yes, no matter what society says, you became one!), to help navigate the strong emotions, the surprising feelings and the complex network of daily relationships after pregnancy loss.
This site and our Instagram community are meant to be like a faithful friend who will walk with you through your journey – giving tips and encouragements, as well as space to grieve.
