A new perspective

Me and step-sister are the same age. My life got a whole lot better not long after her whole world came crashing down. My biological father chose not to be in the picture but my sister lost her mother (who desperately wanted a daughter) to breast cancer. My sister never speaks about it, we are 32 and she lost her mother when she was 3. Listening to Brittany and her guests is eye opening and heart breaking at the same time!

This Podcast is amazing. Had been waiting for it to air since Brittany posted the preview on Instagram. It's surreal but welcome experience to listen to others stories of losing their mum. Couldn't have came at a better time in my grieving process.

Brilliant

Having lost a parent as a child I can really resonate with this podcast. It deals with complex emotions in a way which is really honest and powerful. I’ve not come across a podcast like this before and I’m so grateful for this content. A good mix of vulnerable and humour, dealing with trauma in a way which is totally relatable and shows how life goes on in the aftermath of loss. Absolutely brilliant. Can’t recommend this highly enough.
