Don't Talk About the Baby Film
Silence the shame, not the voices
1 in 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage
1 in 160 deliveries result in stillbirth
1 in 8 couples struggles with infertility
many men and women suffer in silence when struggling through fertility
issues or suffering a pregnancy loss. Several cultural and community
influences often pressure a man or woman to keep their experiences to
themselves, and this contributes to a massive culture of secrecy
surrounding these extremely prevalent issues.
This documentary explores how we got to this culture
of silence and what we need to do to get away from it. Through expert
interviews and personal stories, this film empowers people to tell their
stories in their own communities, and start conversations that will
change how we talk about loss and infertility."

PAILA of WCMD and DTATB
During September 2015, Ann Zamudio, director of "Don't Talk About the Baby" reached out to Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness of Washington County, Maryland about filming "A Walk to Remember," our annual memorial service, candlelight walk and balloon release. The film crew filmed our event on October 10, 2015. We are thrilled to be a part of this film. The film is expected to be released in 2018.
Ann Zamudio reached out once more in January 2016 asking if PAILA of WCMD would be interested in partnering with DTATB. We are excited for this opportunity to help break the silence and shame surrounding pregnancy and infant loss.
