THE NOBLE PAPERIE CARE LIBRARY
We've been hard at work!
We have been hard at work on a project for the past few months and are so excited to finally share with this community! Here at The Noble Paperie, we want to support women walking through miscarriage, infertility, and other pregnancy-related issues—because we've been there, too.
When I was walking through my own miscarriage, I felt really alone. I didn't want to share my experience with anyone apart from my husband. I hadn't found a supportive community online and didn't feel comfortable immediately sharing the news with family and friends. Of course I spent a lot of time googling, but it didn't provide great results... as I didn't even really know what I was looking for. Eventually, I sought out help through a therapist to talk through my grief, but even getting to that stage took some time. The whole reason I started The Noble Paperie was because there weren't resources available, and I wanted to change that. And I'm so happy to see that so much has progressed in the last 3 years—I finally shared my own miscarriage story, there are more and more resources and communities online, and I feel like the stigma of talking about loss is slowly starting to dissipate. With that said, there's still a lot of work to do.
I've spent the last few months researching and crafting a library of articles, blogs, websites, online-communities, podcasts, music, books, and gifts to support loss-mamas and mamas in waiting. And I'm thrilled to share it here. Introducing, The Noble Paperie Care Library.
Please use our library of care to help support yourself or a loved-one during a challenging season. Our hope is that the sources in our Care Library offer comfort and support to the woman with a Mama's heart: the woman aching for a baby. We plan to continually update this, so if there is a resource you know of that we have left off, please leave a comment and we will make sure to check them out. We are so excited to grow this community of support around loss-mamas!
