I Want To Hear Your Story

My name is Grace and I am a student at Hampshire College who is doing her senior thesis on women’s experiences of pregnancy loss. My goal is to interview as many women as I can about their story. This experience is one that can shake lives, but does not generally get discussed. While working as an assistant at an OB/GYN last summer and at Mount Sinai this summer, I was most affected when my patients found out that they were having a pregnancy loss. Women who have experienced a loss during a planned pregnancy have told me about feeling guilty that their body was not able to function normally. This has left me with a strong curiosity to explore the reasons for the stigma and silence surrounding the Pregnancy Loss experience. In addition to trying to identify factors that influence the stigma of the event, I also want to create a space within which women are able to share their experiences and have them used in a respectful way that contributes to current support structures. I am looking for women who are currently at least eighteen years of age, have personally experienced a Pregnancy Loss before 20 weeks. If you are in the New York or Western Massachusetts area and would like to be interviewed, let me know. If you are somewhere else and want to be interviewed, I am happy to do it via phone or video chat. Thanks, Grace

I'm not in that area but I have had 4 miscarries all before 20 weeks at various stages. I think this is a great thing you are doing and would be more than happy to do an interview. I'm 33 yrs old and have 3 children so I've had a total of 7 miscarriages. My most recent being in October. I've also experienced a miscarry on both planned and unplanned pregnancies so I know the different side of emotions with both.
