In February, we held a Loved Miscarriage Healing Retreat day in Silk Willoughby, near Sleaford, Lincs. We were blessed with a beautiful venue and delicious refreshments, which were enjoyed by the 5 courageous women who attended. As always, they loved the support within the group, and hearing the experiences of those older and younger than them. Throughout the day we follow a programme which explores the emotions experienced following baby loss, and we ended the day with a time of reflection and remembrance, and acknowledgement of our babies. Needless to say, there was a bin of soggy tissues by the end of the day!
Some comments made about what helped most:
‘To be in a safe place to connect and honour the loss of my babies- so healing.’
‘The forgiveness session, and the ceremony- being authentic and open with it all.’
‘To spend time with others, and reflect…’
