Listen in as my special guest Aubrey Tollefson shares her story of loss after loss after loss but the remarkable way she found hope and healing through intentionally choosing gratitude amidst an unbelievable amount of grief.
During our time together Aubrey and I talk about what pregnancy after recurrent loss is like, why she couldn’t even bring herself to buy maternity pants and why she hates the phrase ‘pregnancy is a natural thing.’ Aubrey also gets really honest about the complex nature of experiencing both joy and loss all at the same time and what she would say to another mom who is walking through such a dichotomy. And make sure to listen all the way to the end when she shares a piece of absolutely invaluable wisdom. No matter what has brought you here today, I am sure that this interview will resonate with you as it did with me.

Aubrey talks about how hard it was amidst her losses to be really honest about the grief she was experiencing and how utterly hopeless she felt during that time but didn’t feel the freedom to talk about it with those around her.
