On Mother's Day (and beyond), we honor all moms, but not without acknowledging that today can mean a lot of different things to different people. Wherever you are in the world, here's to the day when we can all give each other a big hug once again.
Two years ago today, these words by the incredible Mari Andrew sparked emotional stories, healing and growth within our Knix community. From it, the Faces of Fertility campaign stemmed, and from there The Life After Birth Project blossomed. Read on to learn about these special initiatives that are so near to our hearts.
Faces of Fertility
Last year, Knix launched the Faces of Fertility podcast for one simple reason— we don’t speak openly enough about our fertility journeys. Through this podcast, Knix CEO and founder Joanna Griffiths and health journalist Katherine Flemming lift the veil on some of the most stigmatized fertility topics such as surrogacy, miscarriage, pregnancy loss and infertility. Through interviews and storytelling, Faces of Fertility aims to make these experiences a little less isolating. You can check out the first season on Apple Podcasts and Spotify, and you can learn more about the podcast here.
The Life After Birth Project
The Life After Birth Project was initially a travelling gallery that highlighted postpartum journeys, as well as the stories that honor the transformative and unique experience of giving birth. Touring everywhere from Toronto to LA, we were honored to share all of your eye-opening and emotional stories with the world. You can still be part of the experience by visiting our digital gallery here. A growing project that normalizes and honors postpartum experiences, we are excited to see LAB forever evolve.
We are so proud to be part of so many of your motherhood journeys. Between your emails, DM’s, and stories submitted for the Life After Birth Project, we love growing alongside you. Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Team Knix!
