Interview with Melissa Desveaux

Melissa Desveaux, born in Sydney Australia, is an author of her memoir “My Life of Loss” and co-author and compiler of “Comfort for the Tears, Light for the way” and “Comfort for the Tears”.

Melissa became an author after sharing her experience of pregnancy loss. She has helped families around the world write their own pregnancy stories so they too can be empowered to help others. Melissa compiled them into a book of memoirs in October 2016. 

In January 2017, Melissa was nominated and won an Australia Day award for her dedication and commitment to helping families with pregnancy and infant loss. 

It became apparent that helping people write and publish their own book is where her passions and abilities are.

Melissa created her business as a self publishing consultant in April 2018 to help people that want to share their life experience, write and publish it to become self published authors and empower their readers, to take action in their own lives. 

In August 2018, Melissa became a contributing author for the #1 bestselling book #BetterWoman, Better World.


I’m a mother of six. Four in heaven, and two boys on Earth.

I started writing after my stillborn daughter was born, created a blog, fundraisers and then my first memoir “My life of Loss – It shares my journey of my six pregnancies. Three miscarriages and stillbirth. 

After it was released opportunities for my story to be heard came out of nowhere and I felt a need to help other people with pregnancy struggles write their own story. This is brought me to compiling and publishing two more pregnancy related books written by women who have have been through pregnancy heartache.

“Comfort for the tears, Light for the way” is the first compilation, they are memoirs written by mothers who have experienced their own pregnancy struggles including miscarriage and stillbirth, infant loss, premature births and IVF. 

“Comfort for the Tears” was released in December 2018 it’s another book of heartbreaking and heartwarming pregnancy memoirs, with updated and new stories.
