CREATAVIST: A Different Kind of Grief

Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 10.36.44 PM

I decided to self-publish my masters project that I worked on at the Journalism School last year. It is an article that looks at neonatal loss (the loss of a child before or shortly after birth) and the grief that these parents experience. This was an incredibly sensitive piece that I spent over three months reporting.  I spoke on the phone with these women, attended their support group meetings, met with them and even went to their homes. I think it is an incredibly important story, but unfortunately I couldn’t find a magazine that would publish it because it was too sad.  However, I felt that these women deserved to have their story told.  I hope you feel the same.
Here is the link to the story online: https://simonescully.creatavist.com/story/6870
Please feel free to share with others.  Since I self-published, I’m hoping to reach as wide an audience as I can on my own.

Thank you again for reading my work!
