Shacarra Palmer founded the Never Cry Alone Foundation after experiencing two consecutive perinatal child losses in 2016 and 2019.
In 2016, Shacarra Palmer went through some of the darkest times in her life when she lost her first baby. For two years, she struggled with grieving and suffered in silence because she felt alone in her trauma.
In 2018, she decided to seek help from God and a mentor, a decision that helped her find release from the pain and begin her healing process.
Shacarra Palmer suffered another loss in 2019, but this time, she was able to grieve healthily and recover from the loss.
In April 2020, she was a part of a business cohort whose assignment for that quarter was to touch lives through an anthology book. It was God who gave her the subject of infant loss. As she began what she thought was just a project she discovered how much she desired to share her story and to help women who have similar experiences find their healing through the power and grace of Jesus Christ.
Now, she is helping women all over the world deal with the pains and trauma of infant loss through her foundation. gain faith and hope from reading the accounts of other women who have experienced infant loss and have gone on to have their rainbow babies.
What Inspired your start in entrepreneurship?
My journey to healing after pregnancy loss is what inspired me to start my 501c3 Never Cry Alone. After losing my first child to stillbirth, I did not grieve in a healthy way which caused me to lash out, to find other ways to numb the pain that led me into a deep depressive state that I did not even know I was in until I got better. Once I begin to heal and become a better me after loss, I did not want any other angel mom to have to experience what I experienced or more. Grieving is important but healthy grieving is necessary.

What is your definition of a pretty woman who hustles?
A pretty woman who hustles is a boss who is doing everything that God has given her with beauty and Grace. A woman who is able to take the vision and with God, faith, resilience, and perseverance she makes it come to fruition and make it look easy.
