Your body mind and spirit network for pregnancy loss and grief support

 

shine.

This was my most recent post to the online magazine I write for, Pregnancy After Loss Support. http://www.pregnancyafterlosssupport.com/shine-on-mama/ I hesitated in sharing it on this page, as the moments after pregnancy loss sure don’t feel radiant at all.  But I was thinking, that even within the sadness, I want you to find times when you [...]

Valentines Day

I woke up today and realized Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  I probably should have noticed it was coming a bit sooner.  But I didn’t, and I’m not going to worry about it.  Instead, I’m going to treat myself this year.  Nothing extravagant, nothing remarkable.  Simply this:  I’m going to write a love letter.  To [...]

many ways to grieve

I am so sad. My heart is so sad. This isn’t about baby loss.  But it is about allowing for the sad when it hits you.  It is about grief, and the way I continue to experience grief in different times in my life.  I am finally learning not to search for an explanation, but [...]

autumn love

Sweet ones.  If I can offer one opportunity for “YES TO THIS” at this time of year, it is simple – go outside.  And I’m going to keep this post very simple.  Not much needs to be said. A week later, I am still reverberating from a weekend in the middle of the woods.  I [...]

mysteries of the body

The way our body stores our history will never cease to amaze me.  Bear with me while I wander around explaining the background here. I do have a point! I just got home from a minor surgical procedure – had to remove a small mass called a “lipoma” – a benign mass that is basically [...]

Kindness Matters.

Kindness matters. This post doesn’t have much to do with baby loss, but does have to do with compassion, which I suppose go hand in hand.  I’ve spoken of the idea before, that we never actually know what is going on in the inner workings of someone else’s life.  We don’t know what makes a [...]
