WELCOME TO THE EPLA
that no family suffers miscarriage alone.
The Early Pregnancy Loss Association (EPLA) supports women and families as they suffer early pregnancy loss. To provide this support, we distribute resources to care providers that directly aid women while they undergo the immediate physical and emotional burden of their loss.
By working closely with professional care providers, we are able to reach women and families through their current network of care. Care providers include doctors, nurses, clergy, counselors, and other non-profit service organizations that currently provide care for women and families.
Listen to our podcast.
We are here to love, support, and dignify the women and families who have suffered early pregnancy loss. Through story-telling and educational interviews the Hope Blooms podcast helps us build a community so that no one suffers miscarriage alone. Hope Blooms is a production of the Early Pregnancy Loss Association.
OUR FOUNDER'S STORY
After experiencing two miscarriages in 2014, EPLA co-founder, Emily Carrington, became aware of the hushed culture surrounding early pregnancy loss. As she grieved the loss of her children, she noticed that this feeling of isolation was only increased because of a lack of resources available for women and families grieving early pregnancy loss. While paying miscarriage-related medical bills, Emily started to work on a simple idea: "What if we could make just one of these bills go away for other women?"
