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 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 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 Momma left behind.
