About the Author: Born and raised in Wayzata, Minnesota, Margaret Scofield attended the University of Arizona where she earned her BA in English with a minor in Family Studies and Human Development. In 2016, while taking time off from her career to start a family, Margaret’s dear friend lost her daughter to miscarriage. As a new mom herself, Margaret wanted to do more to help. After she tried in vain to find a baby book that catered to the 1 in 4 women who endure miscarriage, Margaret’s purpose became clear. In 2016, Margaret started a business and created the manuscript for I Love You Still: A Memorial Baby Book. Since then, the book has been circulated to over 20 countries, and her story has appeared on news outlets such as NBC News, The TODAY Show, People Magazine, FOX Television, and MSN News. Today, Margaret continues her mission to cherish pregnancy, remember baby, and honor motherhood by encouraging real conversation about pregnancy and baby loss, and postpartum mental health.
