About Carla Grossini-Concha

Carla Grossini-Concha is a native New Yorker, living in Southern California with her wife and daughter. She lost her first child, Luca D'oro, a day after he was born at full term, after having a completely beautiful and joyful pregnancy. 18 months after Luca's death, Carla gave birth to their rainbow baby, after having a high risk and anxiety-filled pregnancy. She writes to clear her mind, and to help other families who have felt the deep and complicated trauma associated with infant loss, to not feel alone. She completed her Yoga Teacher Training in 2013 just a few months after Luca passed, and has found her yoga practice to be so healing in her journey through grief. She shares about her journey after losing Luca, on Loving Luca and on Instagram @lucadorosmom.
