Stories of Loss

Your stories matter. Your babies matter. You are not alone.

In 2019 we wanted to end the stigma around pregnancy and infant loss by sharing stories from our community members on Instagram. Each week, someone from the community shares their journey and we post it on our social media. We have seen an amazing response and have made this a permanent part of our organization’s work. You can view the stories below, or on Instagram with hashtag: #sharingmystoryofloss (opens in a new window).

Many of these stories may trigger feelings you aren’t ready for yet. If that’s the case, reach out to us. We want to help.

Do you have a story?

Do you have a story that needs to be shared? Let us know at or reach out on our Instagram.

Shelagh (she/her) brings with her a solid background as an admin in a variety of areas from business, academia and now with a charitable organization with the Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support Center. She feels passionate about working in a role that benefits others in the community.

Shelagh was exposed to bereavement and deep grief at an early age and it left her with a profound sense of how fragile life is and how we need to find joy and light wherever we can. She feels privileged to be able to take this sense with her into her role with PILSC while putting her strong admin skills to good use.
