Eggs: A Comic on Stillbirth, Loss, and Breakfast

My most personal comic about eggs and my first pregnancy.

I want to be clear that I am not anti-vegan nor am I making any correlations between protein and pregnancy. I used eggs as a vehicle to share my experience. I needed to make this comic and I needed to make it in a way that didn’t focus on the day of loss but instead on the before and after. For me those are the times that take the longest to process.

    Just curious, did your mom ever find out you eat eggs? If so what did she think about it?
