TFMR: Well-being

Listen on

Episode notes

Today we're speaking with Lucy Livesey again, all about well-being, including mindfulness meditation, for those going through baby loss.

Lucy is a mental health nurse, hypnobirthing instructor, mindfulness teacher. She and her husband Rick lost their daughter, Ellie, in a TFMR a few years ago.

After her experience, she went on to develop the Ellie's Gift App as a resource for others to help them through the birth of a baby they know has died, or will die.

The app has been developed in conjunction with the NHS. It has just had a new launch with more features. Lucy is dedicated to making sure this app keeps on being updated and added to. 

You can find the app from Apple and Android now.

Lucy also runs a specific mindfulness and grief courses, all free to use. She also runs baby loss sharing circles - again free. 

She tells us about all the different resources she's offering, from the app to her sharing circles. What they are, how they work and why they can help.

And the Japanese art form of repairing broken pottery with liquid gold is called...Kintsugi (you'll just have to listen to the episode to find out why we're talking about this!).
