“So I started making homemade kits for my girlfriends and listing all the gory details. THEN I met the founder of @itsbodily and realized that THEY were making recovery kits, only much better, much cleaner, with research-backed ingredients and a lot of education,” she wrote.

“October is the month to raise awareness of pregnancy loss, and in honor of that, @itsbodily is turning to education and resources to support women experiencing pregnancy loss. I can’t help but think we’re all better off sharing our stories and destigmatizing these perfectly normal experiences.

Brooklyn added, “And yes, I’m on acne meds too, because why wouldn’t I do the full bitch.”
