his is a limited edition artwork series designed in collaboration with Dr. Jessica Zucker in for National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month (October). 

The intent of this illustrated campaign is to zero in on the normative cultural standard that advises women to wait to share pregnancy news until they are "out of the woods" after the first trimester. For those who have experienced later losses, we know too well that there isn't a predictable timeframe with regard to loss. This construct essentially translates into 'don't share your good news in case it becomes bad news so that you won't have to share the bad news'. Furthering the silence and isolation that shrouds pregnancy and infant loss, it's time to rethink the way we embrace all birth outcomes and the grief that may accompany it.
