The Other Mothers podcast has been created with Teddy's Wish patrons Elle Wright and Caro Tasker.
After a conversation with Jen, Elle and Caro, we decided that we wanted to create another free resource for bereaved parents, hopefully something that felt like having a chat with a friend over coffee. It is a place where we openly chat about all things that we have had to experience since losing our sons - touching on subjects and scenarios that every bereaved parent will have walked through.
Though all our experiences are different, we have found each other as friends and we are united in our loss. We all lost our first sons: Freddie, Eddie and Teddy to premature birth and death, SIDS and neonatal death.
We have also invited guests on to the podcast to share their experience too. Our hope is that not only will bereaved parents find comfort in listening to other people's stories, The Other Mothers podcast will be a resource for friends, family and health professionals too.
