Years ago I lost my baby Alex to miscarriage.

by Ellen M. DuBois on 10/16/19

Years ago I lost my baby Alex to miscarriage. His loving spirit changed my life. The pain after losing him changed my perspective. My feet were on a path I didn't want or know how to walk on.

Over time I learned how little there was, (over 25 years ago), available to support women and their families. I knew that had to change and 11 years after my miscarriage, I felt Alex's spirit nudging me to do something to help increase awareness...

Even if only a little.

I wrote a book and started a website. I healed to the point where I could use my pain to try and create something to contribute to awareness.

Adversity into positive.

And now, all these years later, I see women supporting each other, men and families, too. I thank God our very real losses are recognized and validated. I am moved so deeply at this powerful wave of light in honor of our babies.

We have come a long way since the 1990's. (And before.) Each year I hold all of you in my prayers. I see awareness and support growing. We are heard. Our babies are remembered and loved beyond measure.

Love to you all and your babies. I am so sorry for your loss.

Welcome to My name is Ellen DuBois and I am deeply sorry for your loss. is a support site for women and their families who have suffered the pain, loss and grief after miscarriage. I respond personally to each email and post and have been doing so since 2006. It's an outreach to me. I try to connect and give whatever support I can to those who have walked the often lonely road after miscarriage. Why? I don't want anyone to feel as alone as I did over twenty years ago after I miscarried. I'm not a doctor. 
I'm just a woman who's lived through it and am here to listen, share and provide a space for you to share with each other, too.- Love & comfort to you, Ellen
