Wombless and Worthy with Stacey Brown
At 25 Stacey was diagnosed with MRKH which stands for Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome. Is a rare congenital syndrome where you’re born without a uterus and with an underdeveloped vaginal canal. Stacey will take us on a journey full of grieving with grace and defining what it means to be Wombless and Worthy.
- Stacey BrownPoet & Founder, Wombless and Worthy
Stacey Brown (she/her) is a poet and MRKH advocate. MRKH is a congenital syndrome that effects 1 in 5,000 women, where you’re born without a uterus and with an underdeveloped vaginal canal. In May 2021 Stacey launched Wombless and Worthy where she uses poetry to redefine what it means to be a woman.
The world tells you this is what a woman’s body is supposed to do and this is how a woman’s body is supposed to do it. Her goal is to use poetry to inspire and share a message that remind others that are apart of the MRKH and infertility community that they still have a purpose and their body still has a purpose.
Loved your story and your poetry. Made me cry. You are brave, strong and lovely.
