Love & Loss Podcast

Welcome to Love & Loss, A podcast where we talk about the difficulties surrounding pregnancy and infant loss. We host parents, siblings, and health professionals who have personally experienced loss or work closely with those who have.

We are fundraising to continue the mission.  When the podcast launched in June 2020 we had very low expectations.  The goal was to simply shed light on this topic.  It has grown immensely since then and has given so many parents a voice.  It has already begun to transform the taboo of pregnancy and infant loss and breathed life into the darkness so many families experience.  

We have already increased from one episode per month to two.  Joy does all of the recording, editing, and marketing on her own and has no plan to make a profit for her work.  We are creating this campaign to simply cover the current overhead costs and hopefully increase marketing on social media to reach a larger audience.  

Current costs include: 
$15 per month SimpleCast subscription to host the site.

We are looking to expand and add:
Premium Canva Subscription for $1 per piece domain for $15 per year

Long term additions:
Working with professionals to streamline our content, social media graphics, and adding ads to create sustainable revenue.
