How To Share Your Story
Unspoken Grief wants you to raise your voice — share your stories. You can post about what happened, you can post about what you feel now, what you are afraid of — there are no limits as long as it pertains to miscarriage (including ectopic, molar and blighted), stillbirth or neonatal death. You can submit an blog post/article as often as you’d like.
This site is for anyone touched by perinatal grief — you can be the mom of baby no longer here, a father, brother, sister, aunt, grandmother/father, friend — anyone we want you to raise your voice.
You are able to post under a pseduo-name if that makes you more comfortable – all you need is a valid email address that will not be shared. If you have a post that you wish to publish under ANONYMOUS – please just write a note at the beginning of your post asking to be published under the Anonymous author.
There are no restrictions on the posts needing to be ‘new’ (if you posted them elsewhere you are still welcome to post here too) & anything you post here you are able to post elsewhere (as long as it is your writing). There is no limit to how many times you can share your feelings, we know grief doesn’t end at sharing your initial story.
Our hope is that this site becomes a safe place to feel understood & supported within a community who understands.
Here is how you do it:
Click here to register as a contributor of the site. If you have used WordPress before then you will be familiar with how to post. We will be coming out shortly with a quick how-to-post tutorial if you are not familiar with the process.
If you prefer to just email your story to be uploaded by the editors — you can do so using the following form:
Share Your Story. Raise Your Voice.
All submitted posts will be lightly* edited for spelling, grammar & appropriate content & may take some time for your post to appear on the site.
Thank you so much for helping to build a safe, supportive & understood community.
*lightly meaning it will not be edited to perfection in order to maintain the style & voice of the author
