Exactly what I needed

I lost my firstborn child to complications in May 2020 and am extremely thankful for this podcast. Dr. Ashleigh Smith urges listeners to “keep going, keep going”, and every time she says it I well up with tears and smile, because some days that’s all I can try to do. Thank you Ashleigh!
