LISTEN ON ITUNES
Listen in as I spend time with Megan Hillukka. She shares the story of her daughter Aria and the subsequent trauma she faced as a mother whose 15 month old daughter had died in her sleep. Megan shares her journey with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder, and gives invaluable wisdom about getting help and the specific therapy that has brought her healing.
We also spend some time talking about how you can love and support someone who is walking through trauma as well as what it practically looked like for Megan to help her older children work through the grief of losing their baby sister. Anyone who has suffered loss has experienced trauma and yet we rarely associate post traumatic stress disorder with the loss of a baby so I am incredibly grateful for Megan sharing her experience and wisdom with us in this episode.
I pray this episode provides freedom in your grief journey as you are reminded that it is both helpful and important to get the help you need when you are grieving.

Mama to 4 living children, 1 waiting in Heaven. Megan lives with her husband of 8 years Justin in Minnesota. Faith, family, and friends are what is most important to her, but she loves spending her time traveling, experiencing new things, and working on a project.
Megan has also began sharing her story of loss and road of grief, in hopes that other grieving mothers might know they are not alone.
