October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Month. Let us take the time to focus specifically on early miscarriage, the ending of “chemical pregnancies” and the honoring of the complexity of early loss.
All are welcome.

In honor of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Month, all are invited to join Amy Wright Glenn for a 2-hour workshop on Holding Space for Early Loss.
Participants will explore:
*Recent research regarding early loss
*The private nature of early pregnancy loss
*Why early loss is often overlooked and disregarded
*The ending of a “chemical pregnancy” in an age of early pregnancy detection
*Best practices for holding space for early loss too often minimized and unreported
This workshop will be recorded for those who can’t join live.
Short breakout rooms (not recorded) will allow space for participants to engage with the material and each other.
“Do you have kids?” strangers asked almost every day.
“No,” I said, not wanting to explain, because, really, it’s an unimaginative question, full of their beliefs about what family means, about who counts as kin, and it’s a hard question for anyone with a complicated relationship to family making, for those of us who’ve experience miscarriage or failed adoptions or the death of a child, for those of us estranged or embattled or in grief. It’s a question I now refuse to ask. “Tell me about your family,” I say instead, because I know belonging comes in all shapes and sizes, visible and invisible, hidden and made and chosen and found.”
