Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness :: Personal Experiences from Duluth Moms


If you have personally experienced loss, we are so deeply sorry and we want you to know you are not alone. Here is a collection of 15 stories written by nine different moms in Duluth. If you yourself have not experienced loss, I still encourage you to read through a few pieces. Hearing the different experiences and perspectives will help you be a more supportive and caring friend, neighbor, and family member. You can still take part in lessening the stigma attached to miscarriages and loss by making yourself aware. 

{We recognize that miscarriages in pregnancy are often linked to infertility journeys as well, but we chose to focus on loss in this collection of posts. If you would like to read about moms personal experiences with infertility, we encourage you to use the search bar function on the top right side of our website- just type in “infertility”}
