Preterm Labor, NICU, & Infant Loss -- What she's learning about life after loss, marriage, friendships and how there is purpose in the pain. | Episode 46 on The Joyful Mourning Podcast | www.themorning.com/episode046

Episode 46

Listen in as I chat with Natalie Sanders, a mama who experienced pre-term labor, delivered her baby boy Axel at  24 weeks and said goodbye after he lived for just 24 days. Natalie and I talk about everything from marriage to friendship and the very beautiful but feasible and practical ways her family is honoring and remembering Axel in their every day life. Natalie also shares how she has grown as and is growing still as a result of Axel’s life and death. I think what she has to say about finding purpose in the loss will encourage anyone listening who is new to this grief journey.

This episode is full of very practical wisdom and just genuine honest conversation from two moms who have had to bury their sons. I pray that even more than practical advice or honest conversation, this episode would serve as a reminder that you are never, ever alone in this grief journey and that you truly are more loved than you could ever imagine.

I also have two dogs and two cats. I am a licensed clinical social worker, and I work with the veteran population. And I am a market partner for Monat. I love shopping at Costco, doing things outside, and making things on my Cricut!
