Tell your tale

Whether your story holds happiness and laughter or heartbreak and tears, there is a place for it to be told. Share with us the good, the bad, and the ugly of your most intimate moments. 

Want to write for us? I am accepting story submissions for the following collections: 

The Beginning: Stories of Fertility

Trying to conceive, surrogacy, infertility, adoption. From the first conversation about having children to the moment to you find out you’re pregnant. Tell us about your struggles, your one night stand, your surprise baby, or your miracle baby.

The Journey: Pregnancy Stories

What was your experience through pregnancy? Tell us your funny stories, your battle with GD or HG, your fears, and more. We all pee a little, don’t skip the details.

The Welcome: Birth Stories

I didn’t get the birth I wanted. Many of us don’t and many of us do. Celebrate your birthing experience or write your way through acceptance.

The Adjustment: Postpartum Stories

Life with a new baby is wonderful and tough. How did you adjust? How did your other children adjust? Maybe there was no adjustment, only the waves of fog and darkness that come with postpartum depression and anxiety.

The Storm: Stories of Loss

Miscarriage, stillbirth, loss at birth. One of the greatest heartaches one can endure. Brave your storm, memorialize your loss, grieve, and support.
