Flyer forthcoming! In the meantime:
The University of Michigan Center for Reproductive Medicine and ART of Infertility bring you this 3-part program for individuals and loved ones grieving reproductive loss. Lindsay Brennan and Lesley Farrell, Clinical Social Workers from the UM Center for Reproductive Medicine will discuss coping strategies for grief and loss. Robin Silbergleid will share excerpts from her recent book of poetry, The Baby Book, which documents her journey from infertility treatment through parenthood. She will also lead participants in a short exercise for expressing their own experiences through imaginative letter writing. And, Maria Novotny and Elizabeth Walker, founders and curators of ART of Infertility, an infertility artwork, oral history and portraiture project and traveling exhibit, will guide participants in the making of personalized keepsake boxes. Some pieces of visual art and writing from ART of Infertility’s permanent collection will also be on display throughout the event.
