About the author

Meet Libby June Weintraub, a multifaceted soul—a mother, artist, writer, and poet. Libby originally hails from Western Australia and now resides in the warm embrace of Santa Monica, California, alongside her husband, Stephen (Scooter) Weintraub. In 2014, their lives were forever changed when they welcomed, and sadly, said goodbye to their stillborn child, Magnolia Grace. 'She Was Born: Words on Loss and Liberation' marks Libby's first book—a collection of poems that have been a steady companion on her journey of healing. Her words serve as a guiding light through the labyrinthine path of recovery from the profound loss of a child. In her writing, Libby shares the profound experiences of discovering connection, compassion, joy, love, and understanding on the other side of grief. Her book stands as a testimony to the human spirit's capacity to heal even in the face of inexplicable sorrow. Libby's work gracefully navigates the intersection of life and death, nature and art, psychology and spirituality. She artfully explores how these themes can serve as pathways, leading us toward deeper self-discovery and healing in the wake of grief and trauma. In her dedication to supporting others on their healing journeys, Libby hosts annual retreats for mothers who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss. Through creative self-expression, these retreats help mothers uncover newfound freedom and healing.
