When I thought about what I would write about for my bi-monthly spot in Pregnancy After Loss Support’s publishing calendar, my mind flashed back to something a doctor said to me right before an important ultrasound. She said, “A uterus is a potential space.” It’s an interesting way to talk about an organ but I think the reason the moment came to me wasn’t because of biology. The moment came to me because it felt like a metaphor. The doctor was talking about my body, sure, but she was also talking about my mind. And my life. I wrote this month’s PALS piece all about that moment and what holding space for potential means to me right now.
I hope you enjoy my latest for PALS, entitled A Potential Space.
