I feel so lucky to get to tell you that I have officially joined the team at Pregnancy After Loss Support as a magazine contributor. PALS asked if I would be willing to write about my experience trying to conceive after my July 2019 miscarriage (To be clear, I am not pregnant again yet; this is not an indirect pregnancy announcement!). I’m honored that my writing will have the opportunity to connect with parents looking for help processing the complexity of life after loss.
My first essay is live on the PALS website today, and it’s one from the vault that I’m really proud of. In it, I write about butterflies and miscarriage, but I think what it’s really about is hope. I’d love if you read it.

Congratulations, honey! You are really making headway with your writing, making it more circulated and your name and resume better known. I am especially proud of your voice helping people deal with many sensitive issues.
Thank you, Mom! I love the idea of my words being able to help people get through the tricky bits of life even a little more easily.
Congrats Em, I’m so happy others will get the opportunity to read your messages! In these ongoing challenging time(s), I would suggest you turn the lens on how one can be positive with all the inherant negativity we seem to be exposed to on a daily basis. I think it would be a fresh relief to those of us on the front lines. Your thoughts?
Thank you so much for your kind words, Mark! I am so pleased that we’ve been able to stay in touch a bit through this blog. I love your idea bout turning toward the positive right now. In fact, I just wrote something about how I’m trying to do that with the upcoming strange back-to-school season, and I think it could be adapted to a lot of different situations. I hope you’ll read it and let me know what you think: https://emilypgerickson.com/2020/09/07/the-chart-thats-keeping-me-grounded-this-pandemic-school-year/
