Today was one of those days that you look forward to for the learning but you know it’s going to be tough. It was both, tears did fall as we listened to stories of loss from mums and what can make a difference.

Loss from miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death is such a difficult subject and we often shy away from having that conversation. Our words and actions can make a huge difference to a mum, dad, partner and family.

Today was very informative and I will put all I’ve learned with previous training to help me further support mums and families in my role as a post natal Doula. 🌈
