Overview

First trimester miscarriage is rarely discussed and typically brushed aside due to society's opinion that a loss this early doesn't matter. Women are often left to grieve in silence. All That is Seen and Unseen is full of Elizabeth's most private journal entries. She introduces you to her life and the years she suffered through infertility. This pregnancy was a complete surprise; however, like many other women who endure pregnancy loss, Elizabeth had a looming feeling she would lose her baby. Elizabeth takes you into the exam rooms as she watches her baby grow, only to discover that her feelings of loss were confirmed just eight weeks into her pregnancy. Elizabeth will walk you through her devastation, grief, and recovery.
