This week, I have a special episode with thoughts and suggestions for how you can survive the festive season, involve your children in your celebrations and find happiness at this difficult time of year.
Although this episode is centred around Christmas, many of the ideas and suggestions are applicable to any festival or special occasion that you celebrate. These times of the year have so many hopes and dreams wound up in them that they can be really tough whether your loss is recent or many years ago.
I talk about:
- Letting go of expectations
- Coping with the build up to Christmas and 24 ideas for Advent to Remember
- How you might want to include your baby in your family’s Christmas celebrations
- How family and friends can support bereaved parents at this time of year
Most importantly, please do be kind to yourself this Christmas. I hope this episode gives you some ideas and support for getting through the festive season and you can find some joy amongst the sadness and loss.
