Carrying Loss, Hallie S. Wilk

Student Publications

"Carrying Loss" is a creative nonfiction piece I wrote based off of someone I know, a mother who discovers that she is pregnant with a baby that has Trisomy 18, a genetic disease with very low survival rates. This piece follows the internal struggle of the mother as she deals with this information, and decides to carry the baby to full term, despite the fact he has passed inside of her.

Physics and Astronomy Faculty Publications

And yes, I am like Marie in that I have woman parts, I study nuclei, I have two children and a physicist husband. But had I lived in her time, I would not have been that rare female admitted to the Sorbonne. I could not have quietly made the top scores on the math and physics examinations.
