As Mothers Day nears it can feel almost impossible to dodge the onslaught of soppy messaging in the community. Mothers day gifts, cards and flower bouquets have overtaken the stores, tv, radio and social media send out a constant barrage of triggering messages, friends make plans to catch up with their mums, grandmas etc, …it can feel like there’s no escape. Some of us just want to hide, switch everything off and wait for it to be over.
This is your space to share your grief and loss experiences about motherhood in all its forms. And to listen, support and give hope to one another.
We honour the children (young and old) who are grieving;
Those who have lost their beloved mum,
Those who have lost an adored grandmother, aunty or matriarch,
Those who have lost the one true maternal figure in their life,
And those never given the opportunity to love a mother.
We honour Mothers who are grieving for children lost;
Those who have lost children they loved and raised,
Those who have lost babies they held in their arms,
Those who have lost unborn children who lit a spark in their belly,
And those who have lost the dream of the precious child they longed for.
We honour Mothers who are grieving for a better life for their children;
Those raising children with compromised physical, mental or emotional health,
Those raising children in circumstances of poverty, violence or cruelty,
Those raising children who face untold adversity,
And those who find themselves estranged from their children
We honour the love of mothers, the love of a child for their mother, and the distinct form of grief and loss we suffer when they are lost to us.
Please express your grief and loss experience here 🌸
