    Episode 3 sponsored by Aila and Lior

    The beautiful cards 'I carried you' from Aila and Lior are personal declaration cards, because of Megan's belief in the power of words – declaring positivity and healing in a time that can be full of heartache.

    The belief in the power of positive psychology.

    And the belief that the emotions of pregnancy loss run deep, and that healing is a process.
    The brand, Aila and Lior is named after Megan's two babies.
    The two babies that she carried, but never held.
    The two babies that changed her life forever.

    Megan's hope is that these cards bring you what Aila and Lior brought to her - love and light.
