Hey, friends! If you've somehow landed on this page, I pray that your heart is encouraged by this compiled list of women bloggers who speak to the silent grief of many. My hope is that you'll find encouragement, comfort, understanding and HOPE when you read these posts. My heart aches if you've found this page with personal experience dealing with child loss. I am so sorry for the loss you've experienced.
I can't tell you how immensely helpful these blogs have been in my season of grieving my miscarriage. First of all, I had NO idea how common miscarriages are among women. No idea! 1 out of 4. That's absolutely devastating. With this statistic, I know I can't be the only one who would benefit from these other bloggers posts specifically about miscarriage and loss.
Throughout my journey of grieving the loss of our child, I remember scrounging around the internet, searching for someone to relate to or share their experience. Ever since October 2016, I've been compiling a list of sites that I would love to share with you.
When we got married in 2008, we thought having kids would be easy. Love, Marriage, Baby Carriage. That's how it works, right? But when we got a call from a nurse who said, "It's going to be really hard for you to ever get pregnant," we felt like we slammed headfirst into a brick wall. We had to choose that day (and many days after) what we were going to believe.

Becky, author of Hope Unfolding and Love Unending, shares her heart so honestly on her experience with miscarriage and motherhood. This is the first blog I subscribed to when I scoured the internet for a haven to know I am not alone in this. This is a blog I follow devoutly. Would recommend to a friend. Love love love it.
Also, my beautiful friend, Kayla shared the book Hope Unfolding with me soon after my miscarriage and it brought so much hope and a sense of understanding that I was searching for.

A bit about her…
My hope is that women will find encouragement within my words to seek to know and love the God of the Bible above all things and through all of life’s circumstances. I pray they’ll treasure Jesus more than anything in this world.
Here are some of my favorite blog posts Brittany has written:
Franchesca Cox is the founder and editor of Still Standing Magazine and she is also the author/illustrator of her workbook for grieving mothers called Facets of Grief.

StillMothers realized the great need for a positive resource in the babyloss community that focused on the unique needs of mothers with no living children. A place to connect, process, and seek healing with other mothers who understand the heartache of being a mother, but not being able to mother in a traditional way. Because we are all Still Mothers.
A bit about them…
Every mother here is a Still Mother. Our situations are different, but we all are living life without one or more of our children. We understand the unique challenges of facing life without hope for the future, and feeling as if our dreams have been lost. We know how painful it becomes to be apart of a community that puts so much emphasis on pregnancy after loss, and we know how hard it can be to feel connected.
