"Don't Talk About the Baby," is a powerful documentary that explores the culture of shame and silence surrounding miscarriage, stillbirth and infertility.
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, starting conversations and spreading awareness.
Don't Talk About the Baby- A Film is for those who have suffered stillbirth, miscarriage, infertility and infant death -- but it is even more for those who have not. We can do so much better in caring for the 1 in 4 families who suffer these devastating losses.

"I watched the video which explains the project, and wept. Like really, truly, wept. Seeing the faces of these women and hearing their voices made me feel like this horrible, devastating, life altering subject of miscarriage and infertility is finally getting a voice. And a face. And a name. And a place in society that has previously overlooked it..." -Allie, Every Little Sparrow
" (Recently) Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan announced to world (via Facebook status of course) that they were expecting a child. But the most important part of that announcement was that they also revealed that they had experienced three miscarriages prior to this pregnancy. They encouraged others to speak up about their losses as well because “In today’s open and connected world, discussing these issues doesn’t distance us; it brings us together. It creates understanding and tolerance, and it gives us hope.” - Celia Behar, Lil' Mamas Blog
