To help raise awareness of the impact miscarriage can have on people’s lives, couple Ben Lankester and Bophanie Lun have created a short film, ‘Who’s Counting’, in the hope of changing the miscarriage story they and many others have experienced. After going through 2 miscarriages in August and December 2020, they were devastated when they found they wouldn’t be formally registered.
“Miscarriage still feels like a taboo that people won’t talk about. We were devastated when we found out that our miscarriages wouldn’t be included on our medical records. The loss felt disregarded because no one was counting, other than us. In many ways the third miscarriage would be a relief, because you know something will finally be done. We hope our film, ‘Who’s Counting?’, raises awareness of the issue and we hope that one day all miscarriages are counted.”
