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

Survivor Resources

One of the hardest things about being a survivorship is that few people around you understand what it is like. 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 life-threatening and traumatic event is a very lonely and grief filled experience... but you are NOT alone!

Survivors often have significant informational and emotional needs following discharge. This is common, and quite normal following birth trauma. There is a desire to understand what happened and connect with others. Many new mothers 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 and groups, but it will help you get started. No Momma left behind.
