For years, woman have suffered in silence. It’s been too long. Things are changing, but change can’t come soon enough.

I lost my baby when she was five days old, I am breaking the silence.

I suffered two early miscarriages, I am breaking the silence.

I am dealing with possible infertility, I am breaking the silence.

I will no longer be ashamed.

I will not care if people judge me. The problem is theirs, not mine. Something is wrong with them, not me, if they can’t understand.

I suffer from depression, and have for many years, I am breaking the silence.

I have anxiety. I am breaking the silence.

My baby was a person. My baby was wanted. Her death was not my fault.

I am breaking the silence.

What are you breaking the silence about?

Please. Speak up.
