The documentary, Don’t Talk About The Baby. As described by the filmmakers: “This documentary explores the culture of shame and silence surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth and infertility. Too many men and women suffer in silence, and this film will be a tool for people to start conversations and spread awareness. Through expert interviews and personal stories, this documentary thoroughly explores why a woman feels the way she does after a loss, and how her community can support her. It examines the male voice in fertility and loss, and empowers families to break their silence and start telling their stories. This film is not a compilation of tragic stories- it’s a journey through the different aspects of the cultural taboos, and a tool for navigating loss and infertility.” See link here for more information about the film: https://www.donttalkaboutthebaby.com/about
