Special Guest: Shontae Horton
Share some info about you. Where you are from, what you do, and what are your interests?
I am a Holistic Fertility Doula as well as an Infant Loss Grief Coach from New Jersey. I am the owner of Omi’s Ma Grief & Fertility Coaching Co. Supporting and advocating for women who have experienced infant loss and struggle with infertility. In memory of my baby, I founded The Light After Loss Program, which supports women in a virtual setting after baby loss to assist them with coping, mental and spiritual restoration, and guide them to living a fruitful life. Furthermore, I am the owner of I Mother And Stuff LLC, where I primarily talk about parenting and wellness. As an author, I have published five books on Amazon. As a professional, I am an Admissions Coordinator. Writing, creating memories with my two babies, and daily bible study/journaling are some of my favorite things to do. I also enjoy laughing with my family and friends around my dining room table.
Why did you choose to be a part of this collaboration project?
I choose to be a part of this AMAZING project to encourage baby loss parents, who aren’t sure if this sinking feeling they have is ever going to end. It was important to me to stand alongside women who have overcome something that they thought would destroy them at one point, and I wanted to be a part of a dope crew of courageous & GOD-fearing women that are changing lives by simply sharing their stories. GOD's mercy and Ms. Noreen made it possible for me to be a part of this.
Share a little about your topic.
Having hopes for your baby and things going wrong is painful, and I cried about ten times while writing this story. It is possible to move mountains by giving your grief to GOD. I am no longer going to be silent about Baby Loss. Having lost a baby is a very heavy thing, and I won't stay silent anymore. To get the crowd talking, it's time for women who have experienced pregnancy loss and baby loss to speak up, share our stories, and be authentic.
What encouraging words can you leave for the readers?
The loss of someone you love comes in waves and you will probably always be triggered by something, someone, or even by words. It's important to give yourself grace and allow yourself to feel what is coming up emotionally for you. My experience has taught me that it's okay to take your time, move slowly, and enjoy what you have. Life is quite short so embrace every breath, every pain, every smile, and every time you eat a taco. Tacos just make life a little better.
