Welcome to A Mom at Heart!

Welcome to A Mom at Heart! We're so glad you're here.

A Mom at Heart is resource for those who have lost their babies and for those who long for babies. Whether you have suffered a miscarriage or stillbirth, or have never been pregnant, this is a place for you. I recently learned that even those who have been pregnant and had miscarriages are still counted among those who suffer from infertility, since infertility includes those who have been unable to carry to term.

Our staff currently includes Julia (editor-in-chief & writer), and Jessica (writer). Read more about us here! We would love to welcome to aboard, as well, if you feel you have something to share with our community. If you would like to join us, contact us.

About the site

A word from Editor Julia:

I created this site to fill a need that was lacking in the typical “mommy” blogs and sites. After three years of trying to conceive (since April 2007), and a miscarriage in June 2008, I don’t feel like I fit in some of the “mommy” communities because I do not have a child here on earth.

Many mommy blogs and forums skip straight from Trying to Conceive to Pregnancy/Pregnant, with no options for those of us who have conceived, who have been pregnant, but then have experienced the loss of our babies.

To some who have children, we are not really mommies. To others who have never been pregnant, we have experienced something they have not. Where do we fit?

I proudly proclaim that I am a mommy, even though my child is in Heaven. And so are you.

The last year has been a difficult one. In my search for others like me I have been fortunate enough to come across some wonderful resources, including articles, sites, blogs, online communities, and products (accessories, jewelry, books, etc.) for others who have also experienced such an incredible loss.

Though there are some wonderful resources out there, there are actually so many that they can be difficult to find. You simply find one and then jump from their blog roll or links to the next, and so on. I will be taking the time to review and compile these resources all in one area, here at A Mom at Heart.

I am also looking forward to occasionally sharing my thoughts and feelings here, and would love to see this site expand to a community blog for others who have experienced this loss.
