After years of struggling with infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, I’ve been looking for a way to help others in their journey. I am hoping that I can share my sympathy and compassion for those grieving through this process and the loss of pregnancies. I decided to share my photography and words of encouragement and support in the form of cards. My inspiration also comes from the heartache and grief that I experience every Mother’s Day, wishing for acknowledgement of my babies lost and a desire to not feel so alone in my experience of motherhood without my children here with me. How do you get a Mother’s Day card for someone like me? Well, I decided to make them so hopefully someone out there who really needs to be seen as a Mother and needs her baby to be remembered on Mother’s Day will get a card and feel less isolated and heartbroken.
I invite you to follow me on my new Instagram account for my Etsy shop (@mamalookup) and to browse through my cards on Etsy, Mama Look Up. Please also check out the other tab on my blog, “Mama Look Up”.
