We are joined by New York Times bestselling author and founder of the Motherless Daughters movement, Hope Edelman, to discuss her latest book, The AfterGrief: Finding Your Way Along the Long Arc of Loss and why grief isn’t something to get over, get past, or move beyond.
We discuss how grief can ebb and flow but this doesn’t mean that we’re ‘doing it wrong’ and why grieving may be a lifelong process, it doesn’t have to be a struggle.
We also dive into Hope’s own personal experience of becoming a mum after losing her mum when she was 17, how her grief has evolved over time, and how we can reframe the experience of mothering without a mother.
Whether you are curious to know how to navigate grief as the years stretch by, or are perhaps interested in hearing her perspective as a motherless daughter and mum, this conversation will educate and inspire you.
Come say hello to us on Instagram @goodmourningpodcast.
