Stillbirth, Pregnancy After Loss & Supporting Other Loss Parents
Lindsey Henke is the founder and Executive Director of Pregnancy After Loss Support, a writer, clinical social worker, wife, and most importantly a mother of two beautiful daughters and one sweet-smiling little boy. Tragically, her oldest daughter, Nora was stillborn after a healthy full-term pregnancy in December of 2012.
After the safe arrival of her second child, Zoe, in March of 2014, Lindsey was inspired to create a sacred place for other bereaved moms like herself to find support during their pregnancies that followed a loss, and Pregnancy After Loss Support, an online magazine and peer-to-peer support organization, was born. Knowing the journey to and through motherhood is not easy, Lindsey also provides professional support to other mothers struggling with loss, pregnancy after loss, and parenting after loss as a maternal mental health therapist in her private practice in Minneapolis. Lindsey’s writing about life after loss has been featured on Scary Mommy, Healthline, Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, and The New York Times. She is currently working on her first book. Connect with her via PALS or on lindseymhenke.com.
