This Mother Is Speaking Out to End the Silence on Loss of Pregnancy
Hallie Steiner
Lindsey Brewer is one of a growing number of mothers who are finding community and healing by sharing their stories of loss.

Lindsey Brewer is a mother — and she refuses to stay silent.

“If I can help one family grieve a little better, that would mean everything to me,” Brewer, a paramedic from Janesville, Wisconsin, said.

Her son Grayson was stillborn at 21 weeks, and a photographer was there to capture the family’s final moments with their son. Brewer says the photos and the online community she found through social media helped her stay strong as she processed her grief.

Brewer is one powerful voice in a growing movement of women who understand that sharing their stories is the first step toward dismantling the stigma around the trauma of pregnancy loss.
