Director Statement

It felt like a lifetime ago that I inconsolably wept while cradling my daughters baby doll, striving for some kind of comfort, after being told the baby growing inside me didn't have a heartbeat. But those feelings of immeasurable grief came flooding back years later in the moment my best friend hysterically called me- she was bleeding- she was miscarrying her baby. Just days later my sister tragically had the same heartbreaking news.
1 in 4 Pregnancies end in the loss of the babies life- yet it is still a difficult topic that's hardly discussed.

"My Baby Cries" tells the tragic story of young couple Sara and Abe, as they struggle with their journey into parenthood. Isolated in their grief, this story aims to shed a light on and encourage conversations around, the suffering that millions of people struggle with every year.

I was very fortunate to find a small, diverse, mostly female, team of Cast and Crew, who passionately believed in the story, to support me in my journey. We also employed several members of the LGBTQA+ community, ensuring we were supporting and offering opportunities to underrepresented filmmakers.
With 175 crowdfunder backers and the film trending globally on Indiegogo, we were able to finance the project and as a result pay nearly everyone involved for their work.
