Julie shares the three different points of grief in her life: losing her brother Tim in 1997, her first baby in 2009 and the following infertility and then having a stillborn baby, Bonnie, in 2015. She talks of her reactions to each grief and how it changed her. She also gives some reflections on dealing with grief - mourning your loss and also moving forwards by choosing hope, even when you don't believe in hope.
This is a live recording from our January 2017 event in Brighton, Journeying with Grief and Loss. It's an amazingly brave and honest story - thanks to Julie for being willing for us to share it with our podcast audience.
