In this episode, I would like to ask the bold question:
How long do you think it's appropriate to grieve the loss of a child?
I've been approached by multiple people about how to help a friend/sister/whoever who seems 'stuck' in their grief. I wasn't sure quite how to answer this, so consulted some beautiful mums I know for their insights.
Spoiler alert! The answer might not be the one you expected and wanted to hear but let's start a brave, open discussion around this topic. Let me know about your thoughts after listening to the whole episode.
