Megan Joplin is in the midst of a personal project — the Miscarriage Diaries. Its common knowledge that many women have miscarriages (myself included) but the pain and loss these women feel is seldom acknowledged. Megan says:
“I had definite goals in mind when I began this project: I wanted it to be out there, I wanted others to know that it’s not something that should be brushed aside, that it is painful. And that for those going through it, it is a death . . . I wanted to honor what was lost. Because of this project, I’ve met a lot of truly wonderful, extraordinary, amazing women.
One of the participants, who I shot in Dublin, Ireland, had multiple ectopics. She explained how scary that was – that not only are you losing a child but you could potentially lose your own life. She now has a little boy who will be one in January. ”
