About me


Hello! My name is Jennie, I’m a writer and journalist, and I have had four miscarriages. (You can read my story – in order – here and here and here and here.)

The words shared here are meant to pierce the silence that so often surrounds miscarriage, fertility, and trying for a baby. Not everyone’s journey to parenthood is 2.4 straightforward, and I want to tell that side of the story. It’s complicated. And ours doesn’t have a happy ending…..yet.

What else? I like cats (I have three: Saga, Birgitte and Shearer) and books (significantly more than three). And, for me, life is not really living without running outdoors – under the sky and preferably by the water – also cake, and really good coffee. I live by the river, with my husband, the cats and the books, in a sleepy pocket of just-outside-London.

This is our story so far. It is about loss – but also what we’ve found in the process.
