Hosts: Rebecca Gallagher and Caitlin Epps
Category: Society and Culture
Sub-Category: Personal Journals
First Episode: 2020
Unfolding over the coming months to encompass a series of podcasts and a photographic essay that bring together the stories and experiences of mothers who have loved, lost and grieved the death of their child. Women from all walks of life are being asked to tell their story, to share their experience of motherhood, and how the death of their child has changed their world. We will explore the stories of mothers, young and old, who have lost babies, children and adult children. We will delve into the uniqueness of each woman’s experience while coming to understand that the bonds of shared grief create universal threads that echo through time. The aim is to bear witness, gain insight, bring light and honour stories that help us to understand the complexity and depth of a mother’s grief.
