111 weeks refers to the number of weeks I have been pregnant in my life. While I had a happy ending, my road to motherhood was a bumpy one. My experience of pregnancy loss was traumatic, formative and it continues to ripple through my life to this day. Over the past few years I have written a collection of flash, poems and CNF about this. As I get these pieces published I will add them here.
Pregnancy loss is deeply personal, and there is no right or wrong way to grieve it. Writing has been a huge part of how I processed my pain.
While many of my stories explore grief, below are the publications that deal directly with pregnancy loss.
