Pregnancy After Loss Support Group
Jesse Sutherland is an infertility warrior and loss mom who lives in Royal Oak with her loving husband, Nick; rescue pup, Clyne; double rainbow baby, Gus; and now, their latest addition, Otto. Between being terrified her entire pregnancy (her fourth after two previous losses) of losing the baby while also navigating the ever-looming global pandemic, she totally understands how complicated this journey can be. She hopes to create a safe space for women to feel supported and able to honor how they’re actually feeling without anyone telling them how they should be feeling.Lilly Pritula lives in Farmington Hills with her wife, Rachel, rainbow baby, Josie, and three cats, Pumpkin, Bow and Arrow. No stranger to all things fertility treatment-related, Lilly is also an empathetic listener and supporter for those that have experienced pregnancy loss. After losing her first child, Cole, at 38 weeks, and then suffering a subsequent miscarriage, she deeply understands the delicate balance of grief and love. She has a greater appreciation of the unique challenges faced during pregnancy after loss after going through it herself during the pandemic. Lilly is passionate about supporting those in their grief, and advocacy to bridge the disconnects between loss parents and their experiences in the healthcare system.
