Please welcome our new Knocked Up blogger, Lindsey Henke! She has an incredible story to share, so be sure to check out her bio below, and stop back on Thursday for her first post.
Lindsey is a baby loss mom, writer, and clinical social worker. She is currently pregnant with baby No. 2, a bittersweet blessing as baby No. 1, her first child and daughter Nora, was stillborn at 40 weeks after a PERFECT pregnancy. Even with her worries about expecting again, Lindsey is excited to move into the next part of her healing journey – pregnancy after loss. She does this by holding onto hope that each day she is one day closer to bringing home a bundle of love in her arms instead of a hole in her heart. She finds strength and joy in each moment of this journey through the support from her best friend and husband, Nick, along with daily cuddles from her furry shih tzu, George. She writes about her journey through pregnancy after loss at Stillborn and Still Breathing. She is also a monthly contributor to Still Standing, an online magazine for bereaved parents.
