So, about a month and a half ago, I shared with you guys that I had been tapped to participate in an independent documentary that explored the culture of shame and silence surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth and infertility. The film’s title is “Don’t Talk About the Baby” and it’s scheduled to be released this summer. During my interview portion, I shared the story of losing my son, Bryant.
As many of you know, (and may have read; see: Dear Bryant.) I’m very open about that experience and how it has shaped my entire motherhood journey. One of the many reasons I decided to create #MomsLikeHer was to provide a platform for moms like me to share their stories, no matter how difficult or painful they may be. Speaking about what I’ve gone through has been very therapeutic to me. It’s also allowed me to connect with other women who have endured the same or similar tragedies.
I’m a behind the scenes type of girl so I was very nervous during my interview. However, the directors were amazing and made the entire process comfortable. I didn’t feel awkward at all; which is very rare for me lol. In the end, I’m so glad that I said yes to being a part of something so important to the culture of motherhood. Often, I feel as though angel mommies are sometimes forgotten. My goal is to always represent and give us a voice.
When I lost Bryant, I vowed to honor his memory by sharing his story and speaking his name as much as possible. That was three years ago; and I’m doing my best to keep that promise. So, without further ado; here’s my story… #MomsLikeHer
