Ellen M. DuBois is the author of I Never Held You, a book about miscarriage, healing and recovery and Host of MiscarriageHelp.com, the companion support site. Having experienced a miscarriage herself, she knows first-hand of the pain, isolation and often dismissive attitudes which accompany miscarriage. She is here to do her part in bringing miscarriage support and awareness to light.
"To those of you who have lost a baby, or babies, to miscarriage, I am deeply sorry for your loss."- Ellen M. DuBois
Ellen recalls: "I remember going into bookstores searching for something to assure me I wasn't alone in my struggle. Nothing was available back then, (some nineteen years ago). Every time I searched through the maze of books, I'd find ones about having a baby- not losing one-especially not to miscarriage. What about those of us who never got to see or hold our babies?"
Hence, I Never Held You was born. It was born out of a need deep within her to reach out to others. She didn't want anyone to feel as alone as she did after her miscarriage.
To Ms. DuBois, healing certainly doesn't mean forgetting. She believes she's forever connected to the baby she lost all those years ago- the baby boy named Alex.
Through Ellen's pain and adversity, strength and support have grown into an outreach to those who have miscarried through both her book and support site, MiscarriageHelp.com.
Ms. DuBois resides in Massachusetts. She is an author, a published greeting card writer with Blue Mountain Arts, Host of MiscarriageHelp.com, and a piano teacher to over 30 students ages five and up.
