" I love your presence. I feel when you are with me you are with me, truly seeing and hearing me. And you have a willingness to learn: I feel your energy as a lifelong student, always curious to discover more, not only for yourself but for others." - Mandy
In August 2020 I went through a pregnancy loss. An experience with many different feelings, flavors, insights and learning. As a tool to process this experience, I started making a film. I journaled by writing, filming and recording my experience and internal dialogue. I realized my creativity was my gift to myself, like a good old friend supporting me on my path through. In the past two months, while being pregnant again, I finished it. It’s supported me to walk through the experience again and heal subtle leftover layers in myself. With this documentary, I want to show life as it moved through me in this chapter of my life.
It is estimated that worldwide one out of five pregnancies ends in pregnancy loss. I made this film to bring awareness to the importance of acknowledging pregnancy loss. This film is one out of millions of stories. This is my story.
