Welcome to The Grief Gang podcast, the show normalising the topic of conversation that is grief.
Grief is something that inevitably we will all experience in our life, so why aren't we talking about it? This show was created to break down those taboos by sharing my own experiences of loss along with phenomenal guest episodes sharing theirs too.
You will laugh, you will cry, but above all I hope that you learn from this show. I hope you learn that you are never alone in your feelings and that you can live a happy life and be grieving (The two can co-exist!)

Big love,
Amber x

    The Christmas episode...starring you!

    The Christmas episode...starring you!

    Welcome back to another episode of The Grief Gang podcast with me, Amber Jeffrey, your host!

    It's Christmas, and this year I wanted to give you, the listeners a chance to share a bit of your loved one with me and the audience.

    I asked on GG's instagram to all those interested, to share either a favourite Christmas memory with their loved one, a message for them...or both!

    The submission's that rolled in were absolutely stunningly beautiful and moving. This episode is a compilation of all those submissions.

    Thank you to each and every one of you who wrote in, the honour is always mine. By you sharing bits and pieces of them, know that they will never truly be gone. Speak their name, speak of their life, speak of your life together. You are all hero's in my eyes.

    Wishing you all a peaceful, safe and loving Christmas.

    All my love today and always,

    Shuma-Spoken Grief

    Welcome back to another episode of The Grief Gang podcast.

    This week I was joined by one of the most wonderful and giving people in the online grief community, Shuma, the queen behind the account Spoken Grief.

    The reason why I say giving, is truly because I haven't come across someone who dedicates so much of their time and energy into providing a safe online space for the bereaved. Her page is full of useful tips, guides and thought provoking quotes. You'd be a fool not to check her out.

    In this episode, Shuma speaks so eloquently and in detail about the loss of her mum. Me being me, was a blubbering mess as Shuma spoke about those final moments with mum, the conversations that were had and witnessing her parents have their final moment together. Shuma touches on how quickly after mums death, that the preparations for her funeral began and how it was coping with doing so.

    Thank you Shuma for being such a wonderful guest.

    Cos you gotta have faith?...Or do I?

    Cos you gotta have faith?...Or do I?

    Welcome back to another episode of The Grief Gang podcast with me, your host, Amber Jeffrey.

    This week it's just little old me waffling away in your ear. More specifically, waffling away in your ear about religion and faith after the loss of a loved one.

    It's been something I've wanted to discuss on the podcast for a while, but was a bit sceptical. So I've taken the plunge, and asked you to do it with me too! In this episode you'll hear not only my own experience of my wonky relationship with the big man upstairs, but also from listeners who kindly shared their own journeys with their faith too.

    I'd like to make it very clear that this episode is not in any way attempting to sway you into a decision as to where you should/shouldn't stand when it comes to faith/religion and your grief. If you follow a faith/ religion, good for you. If you don't, good for you too. Let's not be dickheads yeah? Keep the peace.

    In the beginning of this episode, you'll hear me speak of some beautiful prints made by @TheWaveMethod. Naomi creates the most stunning prints in memory of our loved ones. I'm obsessed with mine and can't wait to frame it!

    Head over to her Etsy page to get 2 for 1 on any print with FREE personalisation by using the code GRIEFGANGWAVE at checkout. After checkout, simply contact Naomi over on her IG page (@thewavemethod) with what name or phrase you would like personalised on your beaut new print!

    It's all about August-Louisa Harris.

    It's all about August-Louisa Harris.

    Welcome back to another episode of The Grief Gang podcast!

    This week I was joined by Louisa Harris, the lady behind the account It's All About August. 

    Louisa and her partner Liam sadly lost their baby girl August to Group B Strep, resulting in Louisa delivering August stillborn. 

    We recorded this episode 4 months to the date of August's birth. I sat in absolute awe as Louisa so bravely shared her story with me at my dinner table. Louisa set up her instagram page to raise awareness of group B strep and stillbirth. 

     For those that don't know, strep b is not routinely checked for in a pregnancy unless detected in other tests such as urine samples. Yet it can be so life threatening to baby. August would be here today if it was picked up and Louisa was prescribed an £11 antibiotic. The injustice of it all is something I have no words for. 

    Since Louisa has shared her story online, she has motivated expectant mums to push to get tested for strep B. Some stating that they tested positive for it and are so thankful that they went and got checked.  Louisa, amongst all of her grief hopes that sharing her story will prevent something like this happening again. A true wonderwoman.

    And for August, wherever you may be little darling angel, I hope you know that you are changing the world. Your Mummy and Daddy are making sure of it, Rest easy.

    Welcome back to another episode of The Grief Gang podcast!

    This week I was joined by the fabulous guest journalist, broadcaster, presenter and commentator, Afua Adom!

    You might recognise this beautiful woman if you have an obsession for ITV This Morning like I do, where she is absolutely smashing it on her appearances. It was a pleasure to sit down with her!

    In this episode, Afua and I discuss the loss of her dad Samuel Acheampong. Afua speaks so beautifully about their relationship and their unwavering bond. How those days in her early grief when she just couldn't fathom getting out of bed, but how the pull of being a mother to her darling daughter Naima was what got her through. I was in awe just listening to her.

    Guest appearance from James Mcbunninson too...AKA the sweetest bunny I've ever laid eyes on!
