Peer Support

You don't have to do this alone.

Connection. Communication. Understanding. Non-judgmental. Virtual.

Peer Support Values

  • Everyone has the right to be treated with dignity.

  • Everyone has the right to have their individual human rights respected.

  • Self-directed recovery does happen.

  • Sharing our recovery experiences nurture mutual relationships.

Meet The Team

  • Ja'Nai Wilkes,

    HG Survivor and Peer Support

    Hi, my name is Ja'Nai and I am a HG Survivor and Peer Support. I have survived five HG pregnancies, and I was able to bring two of my babies home.

    When my HG symptoms became unmanageable and threatened my life, my boyfriend and I made one of the most difficult parenting decisions to terminate three of our wanted pregnancies to save me. This will walk beside me every moment for the rest of life.

    I am a painter and lover of the arts. I spend my time facilitating an art wellness group. I also spend my time trying to figure out ways to cope through the grief that comes with losing deeply wanted children.

    All of my children are my heart, and I live because of them.

  • Alisha Emerald

    My name is Alisha Emerald. I’m a yoga teacher, trauma healer and writer, living with my husband and dog in northern Alberta, Canada.

     

    We lost our first and only child due to a very complicated pregnancy, during which my body began to shut down and I ended up requiring an organ transplant. I have since dealt with infertility and multiple health challenges.

     

    The moments I had with my son, Paris, and the moments that followed changed my world forever. Everything I do, everything I am, is because of him and I want to share his life and light with the world.
