Below is a list of some of the blogs I follow which discuss grief and family life after loss. I’ve included blogs about pregnancy or baby loss, child death, and the death of a spouse or parent. I have found their posts to be comforting, moving, uplifting and informative, so please do take a look.
Pregnancy and baby loss
Leigh lost her darling son, Hugo, in March 2014, as a result of premature birth. She blogs about her deep grief and campaigns for better communication in healthcare with patients.
This beautiful blog is written by a woman who lost her third child, Matilda Mae, to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) at just 9 months old in 2013. She posts about her loss, family life and pregnancy after loss, as well as campaigning for the Lullaby Trust.
My Great Loves
This mother blogs with touching and simple honesty about losing her 12-year-old son and the love for her family and her faith in God.
Losing a husband / wife / partner
The Polished Widow
This brilliantly honest blog is written by a woman who lost her 32-year-old husband, Nick, to pancreatic cancer in 2011, and diarises her life as a young widow and mum.
Life as a Widower
The author of this blog writes candidly for men and fathers who find themselves widowed, he has also written a book based on the tragic loss of his wife, Desreen. There is much here to support anyone during a bereavement.
I have contributed an article on bereavement on this fantastic website which covers all aspects of mental health.
