Episode #13: Miscarriage & Grief with Jenni Heffernan Brown

In this episode of Belonging, I’m welcoming my first guest, Jenni Heffernan Brown, to talk with me about a subject that we’ve both experienced and supported each other through: miscarriage. We’re talking about the multifaceted layers of grief, experiencing grief with a partner, allowing family and friends to (imperfectly) hold you when you’re going through difficult times, and some things you can do to help a friend who is navigating the waves of miscarriage.

“Walking the journey of grief is nuanced and there are mid tones and there are light tones.”

More from Jenni Heffernan Brown:

 I would love to hear from you!

If you’d like to join the conversation, share with us what you most appreciate from people when you are going through grief.

My book Root & Ritual is now available wherever books are sold!

My intention with this book is for it to be your guide to reconnecting with the earth, your ancestors, and your communities as you come home to your whole self. Despite our best efforts, our modern world leaves so many of us feeling isolated, unworthy, and alone. We’re unrooted from the land, untethered from our lineages, disconnected from our communities, and separated from our deepest sense of self. Root & Ritual is meant to be a pathway back to connection and wholeness through rituals, recipes, and ancestral wisdom.
