Life Without the Baby Journal: Redefining Life, Self, and Motherhood After Loss

The loss of our babies is devastating. We grieve for them, we long for them, and we struggle to find our way in the world without them. When they die, everything changes.

Beyond the loss of our precious babies, the person looking back at us in the mirror is a stranger. Life as we knew it no longer makes sense. It feels broken and confusing. The motherhood we expected, the one we planned for and joyfully anticipated has vanished, leaving behind empty arms and wounded hearts.

Who are we after our babies die?
What does it mean to be a mother without our babies to hold?
How do we make sense of the life when our babies have died?

The Life Without the Baby Journal guides us through questions and rituals designed and practiced to help grieving mothers navigate the strange, unfamiliar, and broken world of life after loss. Journaling exercises encourage mothers to grieve not just the loss of their babies, but also themselves, their expected motherhood, and the life they had planned. Rituals and thoughtful questions help open space to redefine and get to know the woman and mother they are now in the life they are living after loss.

Life will never be the same. We will always miss our babies.

Life can, however, be good again. This journal can help.

Order here on Amazon. Or here at Barnes & Noble online.

From Mother to Mother: On the Loss of a Child 

Surviving the loss of a child is an unbearable pain. Yet it is a pain that so many grieving mothers bear every day. The aftermath of child loss can be filled with grief, anguish, guilt, rage, fear, loneliness, and a terrible sense of failure. Mama, you are not alone. You did not fail. This was not the motherhood you had planned, yet it remains beautiful and filled with steadfast love.

In this book, dozens of mothers living without their precious children put their heart into words to share with other grieving mothers. Our hope is that in the darkest, loneliest hours of this life after loss, you will find some small comfort in the words of another mother who has been where you are now. When you feel alone, when you feel broken, when it feels too much to bear – reach for us and we will be there.

We are not failures. We are warriors.
