A journey of hope and healing after a decade of infertility and two maternal near-misses.

Survivors


One of the hardest things about being a maternal near-miss survivor is that few people around you truly understand what it is like.  Yes, you may have the best support system in the world, but facing your own mortality as a young mother has a very unique set of challenges associated with it that few can relate to.  For most women, the aftermath of a near-miss is a very lonely and grief filled experience... but you are not alone!

Most Maternal Near-Miss Survivors have significant informational and emotional needs following discharge.  Many spend innumerable hours searching for basic support online.  I know because I was one of them.  Finding a space to process and connect with other survivors is a healing recovery experience for many.  This is not an exhaustive list of support organizations, but it will help you get started.  No mother left behind.  (*this list was started in the Maternal Near-Miss Survivors Support Group)
