Podcast - Love and Loss: The Story of our Stillborn Babies

Episode 1: Becoming a Mum

In this episode we share the birth of our babies born still; the funeral; running away; self-blame; and self-forgiveness.

Episode 2: Climbing Back From Rock Bottom

In this episode we talk about how the world keeps turning when yours has stopped; the reactions of others; protecting your heart; trying for another baby; hitting rock bottom; and finding the strength to carry on. 

Episode 3: White Butterflies

In the episode we cover the lessons we learned from our babies; the loss of innocence; and building a 'new normal' life. We also leave a message to other bereaved parents at the end.
