This is a workbook written by a mother who lost two babies. After her losses, she felt that the concepts of closure, letting go and moving on made her feel isolated and ashamed.  She created this book as a guide for grieving through connection, belonging, meaning, peace and joy again.  Throughout the book there are self-coaching questions to guide you to new, more liberating perspectives that will allow you to live more wholeheartedly and find some peace, love, and resilience.

This journal was created by a doula after helping her friend deliver her stillborn daughter.  The journal is filled with writing and art projects to assist in expressing one’s feelings and opening one’s heart.  The thoughtful exercises in the journal encourage you to speak your deepest feelings with in an open and unafraid way, practice self-care, and communicate with others.
