A blog is born

An introduction: my name is Katie, and I'm the mama behind The Miscarriage Blog. I am 41 years old, and the mother of four children, ages (as of this writing) 16 months, 10 years, 13 years and 17 years.

I also recently suffered my EIGHTH miscarriage.

Yes, you read that right, I have now had EIGHT miscarriages. But I haven't given up hope; my husband and I continue to plan for another baby (our last).

As I've begun sharing my own miscarriage history with other women, I discovered a need for a blog just like this one - a place where women who have experienced one miscarriage - or multiple losses - can come for support, the latest information and research, and other resources that are available online. Sometimes it helps to laugh, so you may find a little black humor here as well. And I will share my own story as it progresses, as I hope you will share yours.

The Miscarriage Blog is a work in progress - you'll see it grow in the coming weeks. I welcome your feedback as I put the site together - so be sure to leave your comments below.
