Kindred is built on the idea that we're all connected through our shared experiences, and that it's those experiences that make us who we are.  We are opening the door on honest conversation and shutting the door on shame.  We share stories on miscarriage, infertility, mental health, body image, love, loss, self-care, and so much more.  We want you to know that you are not alone.

Your bravery in opening up and deciding to share your story is what fuels our magazine. We couldn’t do it without you. Read over the guidelines below for more information on becoming a magazine contributor.
