About Meagan Pierluissi

Meagan Pierluissi is a Volunteer Social Media Coordinator for Pregnancy After Loss Support. Meagan lives in Minneapolis, Minn. with her ever-supportive partner, Sergio, and their two living daughters: Ruth and Sage. Their third daughter, Lucy, was stillborn after a second trimester loss on June 20, 2015. Unsure as to what took Lucy's life after having been successful in their first pregnancy, Meagan and Sergio took the terrifying leap to try again for a baby; Sage was born one year after Lucy's due date. PALS was there for the long, 9-month journey, giving her hope and a safe space to share happiness and grief. Meagan also works in public relations for a health care company as well as providing freelance PR support to another companies. Meagan shares her pregnancy experiences on her personal blog that actually started as an adventure-type blog, but became a place to get her birth stories out to share with others. She can also be reached by email.
