We are here for you this Mother's Day #StillMums 💐

Mother’s Day can be an incredibly difficult and upsetting day when you are grieving the loss of your baby. It can trigger an overwhelming range of emotions and feelings that can be hard to deal with.

The way you feel about Mother's Day will depend on where you are on your journey of grief. It is ok to feel like this!

Sometimes Mother's Day is far too raw to even acknowledge and that is ok. If ignoring the day and staying home helps you cope with your grief, then that is what you should do. Supporting yourself and seeking the support of those around you through this incredibly challenging journey is important.

Mother's Day can be full of mixed emotions. The run-up can be overwhelming for mothers, fathers and relatives who have experienced the death of a baby and may need help to express how they feel and what they need. It's a day mothers so desperately want to be able to celebrate, but fear they never will. There is no right or wrong way to spend Mother's Day. You must do whatever feels right for you.💗

If you are struggling to find ways to spend Mother's Day after baby loss and looking for some ideas, here are just a few:

  • A day away from social media... even just muting notifications and not touching the apps can be a peaceful way to spend the day. 📲

  • Head out for a long walk, perhaps a favourite spot with family, friends or completely alone. Do what feels right for you! 🚶‍♀️

  • Have a movie afternoon, pick your favourite film or box set. Unwind and escape for a couple of hours. 🍿🎬

  • Perhaps you enjoy gardening?... This can be a very therapeutic way to spend the day. 🪴

  • Have a bit of a pamper day, enjoy a long relaxing bath and maybe even get a facemask. You deserve it! 🧖‍♀️💗

  • Get your favorite food in, whether that’s some snacks or your favorite dinner, it can be a nice comfort. 🍔🧁

Remember, we are always here for you at the Lily Mae Foundation and we hope this post can offer you a little support at what can be a very confusing and upsetting day whilst navigating grief following baby loss.

We see you, we are thinking of you, we are here for you xxx  #StillMums
