About Us


  
Robyn Bear knows firsthand the heart-wrenching pain of pregnancy loss. She also knows how to help heal it. Robyn is the founder of Pain-Heartache-Hope, an email support group for those who have lost babies due to miscarriage, neonatal death, SIDS, and stillbirth. She is also the indefatigable force behind the establishment of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, (October 15th), officially legislated in 8 states nationwide, and growing.

 

Robyn’s story is both inspiring and compelling. Faced with the grief from the loss of six pregnancies, she needed to leave a legacy for her “angel babies”– and to help herself, and thousands of other women, try to heal from unspeakable pain of losing a baby.

 

While friends and relatives were initially sympathetic, Robyn found that few people, other than her husband, Russell, and her mother, Betty, could relate to the powerful feelings of grief she needed to express. As Robyn began writing her own story, she decided to create a book of stories, written by women who had also experienced pregnancy loss, as a way to move through the grief process and to honor all angel babies.
“The book was the start of something much larger than I had intended– but I didn’t know it at the time. I only wanted to express what others were uncomfortable hearing, and what needed to be heard. My heart led me to a place that I needed, and that so many other women were desperate for, “ Robyn says.

 

That place was Pain Heartache and Hope, the title of a collection of 75 heartfelt stories of loss, edited and self-published by Robyn in 2000. Soon after the book was published, Robyn built a website to promote it, and word spread through bulletin boards and other loss groups. Within weeks, all copies of the book were distributed, and hundreds of visitors to her site read the book online, and had left messages about how helpful it was.

 

Then Robyn had another idea. “I realized that there were not a lot of resources out there for women to talk online, so I started the pain-heartache-hope loss group, to give them a safe place to share their emotions, with others that really understood their pain,” says Robyn. Hundreds of members signed on. Within a few months, Robyn launched the Trying to Conceive After Loss group, and then Pregnancy After Loss Group so that unique emotions in transitioning from grief to hope could be discussed in a supportive environment. Robyn monitors the groups herself and has moderators in every time zone.

 

But Robyn wasn’t finished. By August 1998, she and husband Russell had received word of the medical reasons for their losses, and were trying to conceive through assisted reproductive technologies. While she felt comforted moving forward to try to have another baby, Robyn felt compelled to do more to honor her babies, and the thousands of babies whose stories she had come to know. “Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a special day set aside to remember day our angels and to honor the reality of this loss?” she thought. “I got to thinking that I could make it happen, but I didn’t know how. Of course, I didn’t let that stop me,” Robyn laughs.

 

Eager to meet her latest challenge, Robyn approached Lisa Brown, one of the first contributors to the Pain Heartache and Hope story collection, whose son Jackson was stillborn, on October 15, (YEAR). When they discovered that October already had been designated “Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month” by President Reagan, they set on a mission to get each of the 50 states to proclaim October 15th Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Together, Robyn and Lisa wrote letters to all 50 governors and received 20 state proclamations before October 15, 2000, the first official Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

 

With recognition building, the women launched October15th.com and recruited 50 volunteers to serve as state leaders to achieve legislation for a permanent day of remembrance in every state in the nation. To date, all 50 states have had yearly proclamations by respective governors declaring October 15th Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, New York, Rhode Island and South Dakota have permanent concurrent resolutions making October15th a permanent day of remembrance.

 

Robyn and the volunteers are now in the process of having senators sign Concurrent House Resolutions to declare October 15th Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day permanently in each state.

 

“We will continue to press forward until every state has a permanent resolution, so that our babies always have a day that can be just for them, and we take time to remember,” Robyn says.

 

In March 2003, Russell and Robyn welcomed twin girls, Brooke and Madison, into the world. Born three months too soon, the girls spent three months in the hospital before coming home. Today, they are thriving, along with big sister Peyton, 5, stepbrother Kyle, 13, and stepsister, Niki, 11.

 

“We feel so grateful and blessed to have a happy ending to our family’s story,” Robyn says. “But we will never forget that our six angel babies are watching over us, and leading our hearts through life’s important journeys.”
