Still A Part of Us: A podcast about pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and infant loss

Dec 8, 2021

Mom Victoria discusses in this interview the time after her daughter Ophelia was stillborn and what and who helped her, especially her family who were there physically for her and her husband Stephen, but also gave them plenty of space. She also talks about the support groups and women that experienced similar losses that helped her.
