Hope Again Collective is where beautiful handmade earrings tell the stories of brave women who have walked through pregnancy or infant loss. A percentage of every product sold is donated to women walking through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss.
Since its inception, 250 women have shared their stories of pregnancy and infant loss. Over $10,000 has been donated from product sales to provide loss moms with grief resources and medical expenses incurred after loss.
About the Founder
Rachel Lohman began creating earrings as an outlet for the anxiety she carried while being pregnant after the loss of her first child. The earrings were cute and fun, but Rachel had no intention of selling them until friends started requesting to purchase them off of her Instagram. With each pair she made, something deeper was stirring in her heart.
A lover of stories who began writing news articles for fun as a 7-year-old, Rachel got the idea one July day: what if these earrings could tell stories of women who've walked through some of life's hardest seasons and found hope again?
Rachel has been there. In 2017, she and her husband Mark lost their first baby to miscarriage. Almost overnight, an overwhelming journey of grief and wrestling match with hope ensued. While pregnancy and infant loss impacts 1 in 4 pregnancies, most women feel alone in their experience. After Rachel shared her miscarriage story publicly, she was amazed at how many women of all ages and backgrounds came forward with their own stories of grief and finding the road to hope again.
Since then, Rachel has been passionate about empowering women to share their stories, and holding their hands as they find hope again. She is currently authoring her first book about finding hope after miscarriage, set to release August 2023.
