An estimated 1 in 3 pregnancies end in miscarriage, yet people rarely talk about this traumatic, often life-changing experience. Standard medical care often has no words of wisdom; no cure.
In this film journalist Lisa Francesca Nand documents her own experience with recurrent miscarriage and subsequent treatment over a period of two years. Speaking with women who have lost babies as well as to medical experts, Lisa endeavours to find out how - in a time of immense medical advancement - the loss of a baby often remains so inexplicable, untreatable and largely invisible to all but those who are closely and so very deeply affected.
Why we need your help:
All crew are professional broadcasters and have volunteered their time and kit so far. Most of the filming is now complete. We need funds however to cover expenses, to complete the edit in post-production and to distribute.
Miscarriage is also something of a hidden grief. Those who have been involved don’t tend to talk about it, and sometimes there is little information or empathy available. The more people open up about their miscarriage experience, the better chance we have of improving treatment and care.
To accomplish this we need backers for the project. We are asking you to please donate, as little or as much as you can, and please share this request with friends and family. More people have been affected by this subject than you think.
If we are lucky enough to reach our target please don’t let that put you off supporting us. We've set the funding target low and need whatever we can get. Thanks so much for your support.

Risks and challenges
We don't predict any significant setbacks as we have filmed much of the content, with the exception of a couple of interviews and any holes we spot in the edit. The funding is mainly for post-production so the only things we are reliant on are booking people's time and relevant facilities, which should be relatively straightforward subject to organising diaries.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
