Late Term and Child Loss

Finding Your Mother's Day Muchness After Babyloss

Hey Everyone, I just thought I'd post this challenge in case others wanted to participate. Tova Gold and Dr. Julie B are holding a 7-day challenge to help us to see the beauty in life and in ourselves again (aka your "muchness"). For me, it's a way to honour my daughter by not forgetting who I am. By letting her loss change me, but not ruin me. If you want to join, here's the link to sign-up. This challenge is free, but I think they will be offering a paid course afterward (not sure about the details or if I will be participating or not).

  • Thanks ladies. I'm glad that you find it beneficial. I hope that it will help each of us in at least a small way.

  • The timing on this is perfect. I start back to work on Tuesday and I was worried about being myself at work. Obviously my loss has changed me and I don't want to be a terribly sad and downtrodden teacher. My kids are used to me being happy and encouraging. Thanks for sharing.

  • I signed up! Thanks for posting this. We are coming up on Brooke's first angelversary on the 9th. We had her memorial service last year on Mother's Day, my first one. I really need this right now.

  • Ahhh! Now you know my real identity! ;) I'm really sorry that you're feeling isolated. In all honesty, I can't make a fair judgement because I've been super behind. I think that for me, the community is okay, but it's more about taking a step toward joy each day (whether with others or not). I do think that celebrating each other is a good thing, but maybe it would be nice if there were some opportunity to get to know each other a little bit better first. I'm not sure. I hope that it wasn't a total bust for you!

  • @chickinNH Sending luck your way for the necklace!! And I'm really glad it wasn't a total bust. I had high hopes for it. Ironically, I'm feeling pretty angry at this point in time (after a relatively good week). Maybe I need some more muchness.
