Thank you Dr. Ivy for this podcast. It's so important.
This is amazing!
I’m a new loss mom. I am approaching one year since I went into early labor and lost my twin boys. Navigating life and who I am now has been a challenge. Our culture Is terrible when it comes to grief. I’ve lost best friends, felt pressure to “get over it” and get back to “myself” (I will never be the same) and I make people uncomfortable because let’s face it, dead babies are a deal breaker for a lot of people. Resources/support groups are hard to find. I’ve been keeping an open mind during my healing journey and have been willing to try things I never have. The first episode, when the Dr talked about women in high power roles struggling the most because we are used to hard work providing reward and following all the rules and doing everything right and then losing our babies is a challenge. I was near tears, that’s me! I hadn’t thought of it that way before and helped frame why I’m struggling so much. I loved the second episode with the sound healer. I had never heard of that and was very intrigued with the concept.
Thank you for creating a podcast for loss moms. I look forward to future episodes and more advice/tools to utilize as I work to navigate my new norm and figure out how I can survive this pain and live a life that should include my twin boys but never will.
