    Part 3: Surviving the Holiday Season - Setting Boundaries

    Part 3: Surviving the Holiday Season - Setting Boundaries

    Last week, we spoke about identifying what we need. Now, this week, we talk about how to enact those boundaries. What boundaries do you need to put in place? Are there certain people that you need to speak to in order to enact those boundaries?
    This is a hard step! But an important one. 
    If you want to dig a bit deeper into your plan for surviving the holiday season, I'm hosting a live event on Tuesday, 11/21, at 12pm EST. During this time together, we will review our holiday plans and address any concerns for the holiday season. In order to join this event, simply sign up for a paid subscription on our Substack account: themiscarriagetherapist.substack.com

    Welcome to part two of our series on survivng the holiday season! In today's episode, we reflect on what we actually need to make it through this season. Do we need to say no to certain events?

    Part 1: Surviving the Holiday Season with Mindfulness

    Part 1: Surviving the Holiday Season with Mindfulness

    The holidays are HARD after a pregnancy loss. And it can feel like no one gets that, except for other loss parents. 
     
    For the next 6-weeks, we will be going over how you can create the space and boundaries you need to have the holiday you hope to have. We will talk about coping skills, ways to build support, and practice self-compassion. We will talk about specific responses to your sister-in-law announcing she is pregnant at Christmas morning, or your grandmother asking on New Years' Eve when she's going to get her great-grandchild. 
     
    I wrote a longer post on mindfulness on our Substack account. Read it here!
