The article, “Unpregnant: Mothers’ secret grief” by Lisa Roose-Church states

“Samantha Fox’s eyes glisten with tears as she looks at an urn and light brown teddy bear on a corner shelf in her home.

Inside the small box are the ashes of Fox’s daughter, Lucy Fox, who was diagnosed in utero with anencephaly, a defect that meant she would likely be stillborn or survive only a few hours to a few days after birth.

“I love having her here rather than going somewhere to see her,” Fox said as her 2-year-old daughter, Grace, climbs on the kitchen table. “It helps us with our loss.”

Infant loss – whether through stillbirth or miscarriage – is one of the most devastating losses to women.

A group of Livingston County women, including Fox and spearheaded by Ashley Haponek, is sharing their grief and healing through a Facebook page, We Are Not Alone.

Haponek, who experienced postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter, said she wanted to find a way to help others with similar experiences.

“The biggest thing I felt was alone and going crazy,” the Howell woman said. “Nothing felt normal and it felt like nothing would be normal again. …

Each Monday, Haponek moderates discussion and reaction to a guest speaker’s live video stream. Each video is a woman sharing her experience with the loss of an infant, whether it is through stillbirth or miscarriage, or postpartum depression.

“Once I went through it and realized how common it was, I wanted to do something,” Haponek said.”
