When Lillian died four years ago, Anna’s heart was ripped out. When her son Gilbert was born with severe birth defects three years after, her grief evolved and has in many ways intensified.
In this episode, Anna shares Lillian’s story of being stillborn at 35-weeks, and how that has interacted with her grief over Ghillie’s brain injuries and a second round of lost milestones with her child. She also shares advice and speaks out against the stigma often associated with death and those that grieve.
